ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant

Ellen Rothenberg 

Wed, Feb 6, 2019  –  Sat, Apr 13, 2019
12:00 PM – 06:00 PM

About the exhibition

The James Gallery presents ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant, a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Rothenberg which focuses on the current crisis of migration and the forces of global capitalism by considering connections between past and contemporary issues of migration. The exhibition draws from research Rothenberg pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, currently housed in the monumental Tempelhof airport, a disused site that was originally designed and built by the Nazis. The exhibition also includes objects and documents, such as passports, birth certificates, comics, and photographs—that represent earlier Jewish immigration and movement—that Rothenberg uncovered in the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership collection.

Nov 26 | “A Sit-in at the Library: ’68 Revisited”

🐝🐝THE LIBRARY IS GOING PUBLIC!!🐝🐝

On Monday November 26th, the Graduate Center library will open its doors to host “A Sit-in at the Library: ’68 Revisited,” a free and public forum of exchange concerning the political status and stakes of students today. Initiated by students at the department of theatre and performance, the event seeks to render the political questions that haunt the university more visible, tangible, and social: 50 years after the student movement of ’68, what coalitions and networks of solidarity and resistance do students maintain—and what struggles are avoided or perhaps neglected? What political possibilities does a “student” status afford, and what possibilities should it afford? Continue reading Nov 26 | “A Sit-in at the Library: ’68 Revisited”

Dec 3 | Michael Kliën Social Choreography/Artist Talk: Parliament (1st NY Session)

I’m a student in the Program in Theatre and Performance working with Austrian choreographer Michael Kliën and the Segal Center to produce a work of participatory social choreography, in the Segal Theatre on Dec. 3. Here’s the event page: https://thesegalcenter.org/event/parliament-1st-ny-session/ [thesegalcenter.org]. All are welcome, by RSVP: staff, students, faculty, and participants unaffiliated with CUNY. Absolutely no performance experience is required.

This event emerges out of my ongoing collaboration/conversation with Kliën and I hope will be a chance, similar to events with choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and theatre artist Veit Sprenger in the last few years, to engage with an artist’s practice in multiple embodied and discursive ways.
