Talk | Lucian Bernhard and The Object Poster (virtual)


Design historian Steven Heller hosts an evening examining the iconic and impactful work of Lucian Bernhard. Lucian Bernhard is the putative father of the modern advertising poster. He came to be best known for the Sachplakat—or object poster, a subset of the greater Plakatstil (poster style) genre. Unlike the Jewish, Vienna-based Julius Klinger, Bernhard left Germany before 1933 and became a more variegated commercial artist, producing type face families, children's books, logos, and identity systems. This wide-ranging talk will examine Bernhard's European and American accomplishments in the design field he helped to invent.

Discussion | Andy Warhol: A Conversation (virtual)


Join a lively conversation with Warhol biographer Blake Gopnik and art museum curators Kenneth Brummel, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Gregor Muir, Tate Modern, as they discuss this 20th Century icon. Spanning all four decades of the artist's career, the blockbuster Andy Warhol was exhibited at the Tate in early 2020 and will be featured at the Art Gallery of Ontario this summer. The conversation will explore some of the exhibition's themes, which include a reconsideration of the personal, social and political backdrop that influenced Warhol's groundbreaking art. Addressing topics such as consumerism, canonical art history, the artist's Catholic faith and the activities of New York City's countercultural underground, Warhol's vast body of work both reflected and fueled the intense cultural transformations that occurred across the globe in the second half of the twentieth century.

Book Club | Nonfiction Book Group: Susan Sontag's On Photography (virtual)


For July, the group discusses Susan Sontag's On Photography, winner of the National Book Critics' Circle Award for Criticism. One of the most highly regarded books of its kind, On Photography first appeared in 1977 and is described by its author as "a progress of essays about the meaning and career of photographs." It begins with the famous "In Plato's Cave" essay, then offers five other prose meditations on this topic, and concludes with a fascinating and far-reaching "Brief Anthology of Quotations."

Slide Lecture | Jewish Identity & Advertising: Posters in The Third Reich (virtual)


The rise of the Third Reich had an indelible impact on graphic design. Some poster artists chose to promote the Nazi cause, others fled persecution to find success in new countries, while others were murdered by the governments that once touted their work as “genius.” At the same time, prominent poster collections, like those of Julius Paul and Hans Sachs, were confiscated and dispersed, destroying some of the best archives ever created within the medium. This conversation will explore the many paths poster designers and collectors were forced to take during and after World War II. Of particular interest will be the work of Walter Herz and other Jewish posterists who emigrated to the United Kingdom to forge new identities and further shape graphic design history, contrasted with the tragic story of Hans Sachs whose landmark archive of posters was only recently restituted to his heirs.  Independent scholar Eve M. Kahn is a regular contributor of features to The New York Times, where she served as weekly Antiques columnist from 2008 to 2016. Kristina Parsons is the Leon Levy Curatorial Assistant at the Jewish Museum in New York. Suzanne Glass studied at Cambridge University, UK and at the Interpreting School of Zurich, Switzerland.
