‘The Light That Illuminates the Darkness: Drawings of Italian Interiors,’ Exhibition

The contrast between light and dark has captivated artists for centuries, providing a powerful means of expression in any composition. This Focus on the Peck Collection installation features three artists that went south to Italy to experience its long history, warm atmosphere and unique light.

‘Ein lustiger Guerillakrieg’: Comedy and Censorship in the Vormärz

As the turbulent decades before the Revolution of 1848 progressed, radical and liberal dramatists such as Georg Büchner, Karl Gutzkow and Heinrich Laube wrote dramas that functioned as stand-ins for their liberational aspirations. Given the sneakiness with which these authors had to pursue their aims due to censorship, their dramatic works evoke what Heinrich Hubert Houben, the first major historian of German censorship, has elsewhere called “ein lustiger Guerillakrieg.” The authors pursued surreptitious strategies to smuggle a message into the…

Fallen Walls and Human Chains: 1989 to Today

Thirty years ago, the Berlin Wall fell. This one event was linked to so many others: an election in Poland, a dismantled electrified fence in Hungary, candlelit marches and a human chain of people joining hands up and down the Baltic states.

To reconnect the threads of this shared yet scattered experience, please join us for a conversation with guests Urszula Horoszko and Niels von Redecker from the Polish and…
