Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones. Proof of vaccination required. Admission each Sat is free.

Opening Reception | The Great Ruins of Saturn: Shadow Puppetry


Artist Alvaro Urbano speculates upon an unknown future. Through the technique of shadow puppetry, Urbano presents a film and an installation that playfully and satirically resurface stories from the Tent of Tomorrow and its politically and socially charged past. Urbano’s work situates the neglected pavilion in a theater occupied by a cast of inanimate characters, bringing them to life in order to question both obsolete and contemporary notions of growth and development.

Discussion | How Do We Celebrate? A Cultural History of Hanukkah (online)


Before the 1800s, Hanukkah was a minor holiday to most Jews. However, the status of the holiday began to change after the Civil War, when Rabbi Max Lilienthal created Hanukkah events for children at his synagogue. Soon, these types of events were adopted nationwide. In the twentieth century, Jews began expanding the celebration of the holiday to compete with Christmas and reinforce their dedication to Judaism.  This is a program exploring the history of Hanukkah in the United States. The program will consist of a conversation between Jenna Joselit, Professor of History at George Washington University, and Marjorie Ingall, columnist at Tablet magazine and author. The conversation will be moderated by Stephanie Butnick, Deputy Editor of Tablet magazine and host of the podcast Unorthodox.

Discussion | Walking While Trans: The End of New York’s Anti-Loitering Law (in-person and online)


A panel discussion on the successful effort to repeal New York State’s “Walking While Trans” law. Through a conversation with leading policymakers, attorneys, and activists, this event will examine how a powerful policy coalition came together to advance the law’s repeal and look ahead to future LGBTQ+ policy campaigns aimed at reducing mass incarceration in New York. In February of 2021, New York repealed the anti-loitering law commonly known as “Walking While Trans,” which, according to its critics, was used by law enforcement to harass and arrest trans people. Culminating years of grassroots activism led by trans people of color, the repeal is part of an ongoing fight to reform the police system and reduce the criminalization of New York’s queer and trans communities.

Discussion | Bridge: Protocols of Jazz and Modernism (online)


A bridge that serves as structure for music, that functions as both practice and protocol, lends this program its title. Bridge: Protocols of Jazz and Modernism draws on such musical structures as the bridge as well as its classical precedent, the call and response, to articulate various protocols of jazz and modern music. The discussion centers on the contributions of major thinkers and artists in the field of jazz and critical theory. It spans the deterritorialization of modernism, the ownership of jazz, and the protocols of bridge(ing). Drawing on art historian Huey Copeland’s concept of feasting on scraps as well as former VLC Fellow and art historian Kobena Mercer’s concept of dialogics of diaspora, this exchange cuts across multiple geographies through various entanglements of thought and practice. It aims at fulfilling the structure of jazz described as call and response by critic Amiri Baraka. Participants: Those registered and Raymond Pinto, performance artist Tendayi Sithole, Associate Professor, Department of Political Sciences, University of South Africa Serubiri Moses, independent curator

Author Reading | The Case for Rage: Why Anger Is Essential to Anti-Racist Struggle (online)


In her new book, philosopher Myisha Cherry turns popular prejudices about anger on their head and argues for anger’s utility—and importance—in the fight against injustice. Anger has a bad reputation. As a “negative emotion”, it’s seen by many as counterproductive, distracting, and destructive, and coming from people of color, the signs of anger can take on even more sinister connotations, stirring up stereotypes, hatred, or violence in turn. But Cherry argues that in fact the transformative and liberatory power of anger—what she terms “Lordean rage”—is crucial to the anti-racist struggle and challenging the status quo.

Lecture | Barefoot Social Architecture Benefitting People and the Planet (online)


This fall and early winter, Current Work spotlights influential and innovative design practices that bring widely varying perspectives to contemporary housing challenges. Speaker Yasmeen Lari is the cofounder and CEO of the Heritage Foundation of Pakistan, an organization working to conserve the nation’s historic art and architecture while providing large-scale humanitarian aid to local communities. Since the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, she has refocused her career on traditional materials, technologies, and architectures in a process she describes as “unlearning.” Positing a sustainable, grassroots model for the development of Pakistan’s built environment, she advocates for “barefoot social architecture,” a women-centered, carbon-neutral approach to housing that emphasizes co-creation and the use of sustainable materials like bamboo, lime, and mud. Under Lari’s leadership, the Heritage Foundation has helped build over 40,000 carbon-neutral structures across Pakistan.

Discussion | Germany and Europe after Merkel (online)


Angela Merkel’s 16-year tenure as the German chancellor will end as a result of the recent German Federal elections, and the election of a successor which is expected for early December 2021. Merkel is leaving office as a much-respected political leader but amidst a multitude of challenges and in view of an uncertain future for Germany and Europe. This panel aims to take stock of the Merkel years and to reflect upon her legacy as well as the future ahead. This involves questions about the policy achievements of the four Merkel governments and the extent to which Chancellor Merkel succeeded in leading Germany and Europe forward. This also concerns the future trajectories in German and European politics and the likely continuities and discontinuities in this regard. Panelists will offer introductory comments and thoughts on the issues and then enter into a conversation and a Q & A with the audience. With Christian Martin (University of Kiel), Joyce Marie Mushaben (University of Missouri, St. Louis/Georgetown BMW Center for German and European Studies), Sophie Pornschlegel (European Policy Centre, Brussels), and Robert J. Rohrschneider (University of Kansas). The conversation will be chaired by Stephen Gross (NYU) and Thomas Zittel (NYU/Goethe-University Frankfurt).

Discussion | Russia in Africa: Soviet Legacies, Current Objectives, Local Responses (online)


In recent years, Russia has stepped up its engagement in Africa, forging military and security agreements as well as business relationships with leaders in several states. What lies behind Russia’s “return” to Africa? During the Cold War, Africa constituted a major site of Soviet geopolitical competition with the U.S. Does this history, as well as the legacy of Soviet antiracism, inform Russia’s current goals and actions on the continent? Panelists will explore this issue, as well as the impact of Russia’s presence on security and humanitarian crises within Africa. What has been the reaction of various local actors to Russia’s presence? Panelists will also discuss the policy response: how should the international community and the West respond to Russian engagement in Africa?

Author Reading | A People's Green New Deal: Joining to Fight Climate Change (online)


Within the past few years, the Green New Deal became the common language for Northern progressive climate politics, offering a seeming exit path from Northern and global social and ecological crises. Max Ajl's book considers the contours of a possible global People’s Green New Deal, focusing on the multiple and interlocking elements for a global GND to become a program for North-South developmental convergence. It lays out the planks of a common ecological program which takes seriously auto-centered development and sovereignty in the South and the North, braided with reparations for ecological debt, moves towards substantive decolonization, worldwide energy use convergence, shifts towards sustainable manufacturing and low-energy convivial infrastructures, and widespread investment in and attention to sustainable farming through agroecology and food sovereignty.

This event will look to examples in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York City to discuss how comprehensive planning intersects with historic preservation. How can a comprehensive plan outline policies and actions for identifying, protecting, enhancing, and promoting a city’s historic and cultural resources? How can preservation goals complement those of climate adaptation, economic growth, and addressing longstanding disparities between people and places? What is New York’s current planning approach for protecting its historic and cultural resources, and how does that compare to examples in other cities?

Author Reading | The Architectural Models of Theodore Conrad: Innovative Work (online)


In her new book, historian and curator Teresa Fankhänel offers an alternative history of American modern architecture, highlighting the often-overlooked influence of architectural models and their makers. Fankhänel focuses on the work of Theodore Conrad (1910-1994), the most prominent and prolific American architectural model-maker of the 20th century, whose innovative work was instrumental in the design and realization of many icons of American Modernism, from the Rockefeller Center to Lever House and the Seagram Building. Conrad revolutionized the production of architectural models and became an entrepreneur. Fankhänel's research is based on the recent discovery of his fully-preserved private archive-models, photos, letters, business files, and drawings.

Reading keeps us connected. Join for a virtual book club! "This is how a family keeps a secret...and how that secret ends up keeping them. This is how a family lives happily ever after...until happily ever after becomes complicated. This is how children change...and then change the world. This is Claude. He's five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess. When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl. Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. They're just not sure they're ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claude's secret. Until one day it explodes." Laurie Frankel's This Is How It Always Is is a novel about revelations, transformations, fairy tales, and family. And it's about the ways this is how it always is: Change is always hard and miraculous and hard again, parenting is always a leap into the unknown with crossed fingers and full hearts, children grow but not always according to plan. And families with secrets don't get to keep them forever.

Author Reading | The New York Subway Map Debate: The Untold Story of a Legendary Moment in Design History (online)


This is a roundtable conversation about the new book from Gary Hustwit which documents a pivotal event in design history: the 1978 debate at The Cooper Union between designer Massimo Vignelli and cartographer John Tauranac over the future of the NYC Subway Map. An audio recording of the event from the upcoming digital Cooper Union archive Voices from the Great Hall has shed light on this legendary confrontation. For over two hours, to the cheers and boos of a raucous audience of designers, transit officials and disgruntled subway riders, Vignelli, Tauranac, and a panel of eight other experts argued. It was abstraction versus realism, simplicity versus complexity. The new book offers a hyper-specific window into the event, encompassing the worlds of graphic design, wayfinding, transit, data visualization and the eternal battle between form and content.

In her classic book, The Life and Death of American Cities, Jacobs wrote, “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”. Through historic newspapers, directories, records and interviews with contemporary Scranton residents, author Glenna Lang reconstructs the origins of one of New York City’s most ardent advocates through her first city; Scranton, Pennsylvania. Growing up in the 1920s and 1930s, Scranton was a place of diversity and inclusivity, public education was celebrated and those with opposing politics worked together for the public good. For Jacobs, an astute observer, the experience was indelible as a foundation on which all cities should and could thrive.

Author Reading | New York, My Village: Uwem Akpan Discusses with Elif Batuman


The award-winning author's debut novel explores tribalism everywhere, from Nigerian villages to New York publishing houses. Coming to New York on a prestigious fellowship, Nigerian editor Ekong Udousoro is about to begin the opportunity of a lifetime: to learn the ins and outs of the publishing industry from its epicenter. His colleagues meet him with kindness and hospitality, but he is soon exposed to a colder, ruthlessly commercial underbelly and a bedrock of white cultural superiority and racist assumptions about Africa, its peoples, and worst of all, its food. In New York, My Village Uwem Akpan melds humor, tenderness, and pain to create a saga of unanticipated strife that proves there is still hope in sharing our stories. Uwem Akpan researched and wrote New York, My Village during his 2013-2014 Fellowship at the Library's Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. He discusses his book with best-selling author Elif Batuman.

Hannaham takes up the complex, contradictory mantle of the Portuguese experimentalist, correlating his work in prose and images to the history of air disasters to investigate con men, identity politics, failures of leadership, the privilege of ineptitude, the slave trade, and the nature of consciousness.

Author Reading | The Best Weapon for Peace: Maria Montessori, Education, and Children's Rights (online)


The Italian educator and physician Maria Montessori (1870–1952) is best known for the teaching method that bears her name. She was also a lifelong pacifist, although historians tend to consider her writings on this topic as secondary to her pedagogy. In her book, Erica Moretti reframes Montessori's pacifism as the foundation for her educational activism, emphasizing her vision of the classroom as a gateway to reshaping society. Montessori education offers a child-centered learning environment that cultivates students' development as peaceful, curious, and resilient adults opposed to war and invested in societal reform.

Lecture | Income Distribution, Varieties of Capitalism, and Growth Models (online)


The distribution of income plays a major role in understanding national growth models. Why have different varieties of capitalism, despite a global trend towards deregulation and income polarization, developed radically different patterns of income distribution? And how is income distribution related to persistent differences in such important determinants of growth models as working time, personal and corporate saving, and international imbalances? In this talk, Prof.Till van Treeck presents ongoing research on the relationship between income distribution and varieties of capitalism, with a focus on Germany and the United States.

Discussion | So Bad It's Good: Hot Takes with Two Design Experts (online)


Push Pin Studios rejected the stringent modernism of Madison Avenue advertising, opting for vibrant, humorous illustrations over slick photography and the Helvetica typeface. While the studio eventually grew to receive international acclaim for its design acumen, its disruptive style was initially perceived as "bad design." This event a design battle royale between a grand dame of typography, Gail Anderson, and the knight of contemporary kitsch, Zipeng Zhu as they put Push Pin under the microscope. This dynamic duo will be picking apart elements of "good" and "bad" design in the studio's output, discussing how those terms have stretched and evolved over the past 50 years, and where Push Pin stands within the canon today. Expect hilarity, design insight, and poster history a'plenty. Designer, writer, and educator Gail Anderson is Chair of BFA Design and BFA Advertising at the School of Visual Arts. Gail is an AIGA medalist and the recipient of the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Lifetime Achievement Award, and she is a member of the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee for the US Postal Service. Zipeng Zhu is a Chinese-born artist, designer, art director, illustrator, and animator in New York City who wants to make every day a razzle-dazzle musical. His work has been exhibited all over the world including New York, Barcelona, Dubai, Mumbai, Shanghai, and other major museums and institutions. Now he runs his creative practice Dazzle Studio and gift shop Dazzle Supply to push dazzle to the next level.

Susana de Sousa Dias's Fordlandia Malaise is a film about the memory and present of Fordlandia, the company town founded by Henry Ford in the Amazon rain forest in 1928 to produce rubber for U.S. car production. Nowadays, Fordlandia is a space suspended between times (20th and 21st centuries), between utopia and dystopia, between visibility and invisibility: steel and glass buildings remain in use while traces of indigenous life leave no marks on the ground. Giving voice to the inhabitants who claim the right to write their own story, the film blends together archival imagery, drone footage, tales, myths and songs.

When murky grand history was unfolding on the streets of Moscow between December 1990 and August 1991, a parallel murky history was taking place in Moscow’s mass media circles, where the old Soviet behemoth of Gosteleradio was rapidly undergoing an evolution towards a post-Soviet market model. At this time, members of Perestroika’s most culturally impactful mass media outfit, the late-night politics and entertainment show View] formed the private media company “VID.” Professor Pavel Khazanov’s talk will consider the vanishing moment between Perestroika and Yeltsinism.

Poetry Reading | Air Raid: Describing What Cannot Be Told (online)


A discussion with poet and scholar Polina Barskova about her new volume. The Siege of Leningrad began in 1941 and lasted 872 days, resulting in the most destructive blockade in history. Already shaken by Stalin’s purges of the ’30s, Leningrad withstood the siege at a great human cost. Air Raid takes us through the archives of memory and literature in this city of death. Polina Barskova’s polyphonic poems stretch the boundaries of poetic form—this is what we’re left with after poetry’s failure to save nations and people: post-death, post-Holocaust, post-Siege, post-revolution; post-marriage and post-literature. How does language react to such a catastrophe? How does a poet find language for what cannot be told? This new translation of a leading contemporary Russian poet confronts English excavating its muteness, stutter, and curse.

Opening Reception | The Yes Men: 'Identity-Correcting' Hijinks


Emerging out of the gathering neoliberal fog of the early nineties, the Yes Men, a creation of Jacques Servin and Igor Vamos (or Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno) perform “identity-correcting” stunts in the heart of the corporate beast, exposing a latent brutality ordinarily veiled through a regular barrage of insidious PR campaigns. Confronting corporate-speak with a childlike earnestness (“what if they really did what they said?”) paired with brilliant subterfuge and cunning, the Yes Men’s “hijinks” provide periodic and necessary shocks to a system whose seamless messaging routinely serves as a means to disorient and immobilize the public.

Lecture | Post-Soviet Conflicts: Doing Better Than We Thought? (online)


The Eastern Partnership has been the flagship project of the EU since 2009. Often, and especially since 2013, this has led to disagreement and even hostility between the Kremlin and the EU. The EU’s outreach through Association Agreements and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreements, while intended as only beneficial, created seemingly exclusive choices for these countries between the EU and Moscow’s Eurasian Union. Ukraine’s Yanukovych government’s rejection of the association agreement and the ensuring Maidan protests of 2013-14 led to regime change, Russian annexation of Crimea, and continuing conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The focus of speaker Nina Lutterjohann’s research offers a comparative perspective to better understand the origins, dynamics, and scenarios of these conflicts. This is shown in two ways.

Opening Reception | My I: A Viewer's Sensory Experiences


The gallery's first exhibition with Chando Ao, a Chinese multimedia artist who splits his time between New York and Shanghai. The exhibition consists of a series of artworks that function as tools for the viewer’s sensory experiences. Chando Ao’s works, where technology and human experience intersect, provide a variety of tools to confuse, inspire, induce, stimulate, and disturb the audience; to let them generate new feelings about their “I”; to connect irrelevant things beyond intellectual experience; to make the obvious strange and, perhaps, to make the strange obvious. Then, “I” becomes vivid. The objects in the show – two digital drawings, two chairs, two dogs, two vessels, and three screen mirrors – are all interactive, self-reflective instruments to arrive at heightened awareness of one’s body, actions and emotions.

Film | Final Account (2020): The Last Living Generation of the Third Reich


An urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility. Men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon—in very different ways—with their memories, perceptions, and appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.

Book Discussion | The Kitchen Without Borders: Recipes and Stories from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs (online)


The co-founders of Eat Offbeat, siblings Manal and Wissam Kahi, present their very special cookbook, The story begins with hummus — First, through Manal’s dissatisfaction with grocery store hummus and second, the success of using her grandmother’s recipe. How many other family recipes were being made all over the city? Thus, the concept of Eat Offbeat was born. Staffed by immigrants and refugees, the company hinges on three foundations: “The first is to create quality jobs for talented refugees who want to be in the food industry. The second is to build community and build bridges between us cooking in the kitchen, and our customers having our food at home or at the office…” And finally, “…the third goal for us, ultimately, is about changing the narrative around refugees by showcasing a different and a more positive story.” Story is inherent in the book, inspired from its detailed chef profiles to its seventy authentic recipes, which highlight the emotional connection of food and home and celebrate the culinary traditions of Syria, Iran, Eritrea, Venezuela, and more.

Author Reading | Atomic Steppe: How Kazakhstan Gave Up the Bomb (online)


Author Togzhan Kassenova's new book tells the untold true story of how the obscure country of Kazakhstan said no to the most powerful weapons in human history. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the marginalized Central Asian republic suddenly found itself with the world’s fourth largest nuclear arsenal on its territory. Would it give up these fire-ready weapons—or try to become a Central Asian North Korea? This book takes us inside Kazakhstan’s extraordinary and little-known nuclear history from the Soviet period to the present. For Soviet officials, Kazakhstan’s steppe was not an ecological marvel or beloved homeland, but an empty patch of dirt ideal for nuclear testing. Two-headed lambs were just the beginning of the resulting public health disaster for Kazakhstan—compounded, when the Soviet Union collapsed, by the daunting burden of becoming an overnight nuclear power.

Author Reading | Scientist: E. O. Wilson: A Life in Nature (online)


Few biologists in the long history of that science have been as productive, as groundbreaking, and as controversial as the Alabama-born Edward Osborne Wilson. At 91 years of age, he may be the most eminent American scientist in any field. Fascinated from an early age by the natural world in general and ants in particular, his field work on them and on all social insects has vastly expanded our knowledge of their many species and fascinating ways of being.    This work led to his 1975 book Sociobiology, which created an intellectual firestorm from his contention that all animal behavior, including that of humans, is governed by the laws of evolution and genetics. Subsequently, Wilson has become a leading voice on the crucial importance to all life of biodiversity and has worked tirelessly to synthesize the fields of science and the humanities in a fruitful way.    Author Richard Rhodes is himself a towering figure in the field of science writing, and he has had complete and unfettered access to Wilson, his associates, and his papers in writing this book. The result is one of the most accomplished and anticipated and urgently needed scientific biographies in years.

Moderated by El Museo’s Curator Susanna V. Temkin, the discussion will center on Hidalgo and Montana’s current projects, and will consider the significance as well as on-going challenges of centering Latinx narratives within contemporary photography.

Performance | Gay Green: Performance Evoking Queer History


Tthe latest performance featuring Enid Ellen, artist David Mramor's ongoing persona and musical project. Enid was born out of private performances from the artist's childhood, which first took place in their mother's closet, eventually with her as their audience. Following his mother's death, Mramor continued performing in drag, often with the makeup and clothing she left behind--discovering a way to recreate the freeing, compassionate space she provided in his youth. For Gay Green, Mramor steps into Enid, performing covers and original songs that bring together different time periods and people within queer history. With green makeup evocative of a wicked witch, and references to Hibiscus--the legendary founder of early-70s San Francisco drag-queen troupe The Cockettes--the performance pays homage to cinema, fashion, nature, and gay icons, with nostalgic nods to Mramor's personal history and the history of drag.

By age 28, this trumpeter and singer has proven to be a rare talent: not only a fiery trumpet player with a stirring command of the postbop trumpet vernacular in the vein of Kenny Dorham and Blue Mitchell, but also a singer with a sly, mature, naturally expressive delivery in the post-Sinatra mold, performing standards and his own astute songs with a thrilling sense of showmanship. His superb intonation and bracing virtuosity enable him to handle astounding feats of originally composed vocalese (complex solos with written lyrics). And he’s a highly capable pianist as well.

Classical Music | Works By Joseph Haydn And Michael Haydn (In Person and Online)


Olivier Brault, violin; Loretta O'Sullivan, cello; Andrew Appel, harpsichord. The mature works of Joseph Haydn are beloved, particularly by professional musicians who have the opportunity to perform these works. Joseph Haydn's earlier works, prophetic of the mature genius, give extraordinary pleasure when performed and heard. The works of his brilliant, if often tipsy brother Michael, live in the shadow of the London Symphonies and String Quartets of Joseph though they merit appreciation and celebration. This program offers two early keyboard trios of Joseph's and a lyrical "Mozartian" Divertimento for violin and cello by Michael. The Four Nations Ensemble has been performing in New York City, throughout the United States and in Europe and South America since 1986. Recordings, concerts, college residencies and arts in education have given the ensemble every chance to enrich the lives of a various and diverse audience.
