Join us for a series of
performative dialogues between experts in diverse fields in conjunction with
the exhibition As it were… so to speak: A Museum Collection in dialogue with
Barbara Bloom. Each evening concentrates on a different aspect of “dialogue,”
pairing speakers demonstrating theory and practice. Unlike in traditional
conversation the speakers do not engage with one another, instead each
addresses the subject at hand and the audience members directly.
The Dialogue and metaphor program features Avital
Ronell, Professor of German,
Comparative Literature, and English at New York University, where she
co-directs the Research in Trauma and Violence project with Vanessa
Place, a writer and criminal
appellate attorney. Sponsored by
The Jewish Museum and the School of Media Studies.
