The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl miraculously enters his world.

    The aftermath of mass murders is felt not only by the victims and their families but also by their descendants, who find themselves in the paradoxical situation of suffering the psychological effects of events they did not experience themselves.

    It is this transmission of trauma that the notion of postmemory – developed in 1997 by Marianne Hirsch in her book Family Frames: Photography Narra­tive and Postmemory – attempts to describe. Hirsch demonstrates how an indirect form of memory may develop in individuals who did not experience a traumatic event personally but feel its active presence within their family.

    Since postmemory is unable to draw on precise recollection

    Aurignacian Genius: Art, Technology, and Society of the First Modern Humans in Europe

    New York University will host an international symposium, on Aurignacians, who inhabited much of Europe and parts of southern Asia until approximately 28,000 years ago. They are the first modern humans outside Africa, and their practices and advances shed light on the origins of the arts in Europe. The symposium will consider the social, technological, and environmental contexts of Aurignacian art and how science can inform our understanding of Aurignacians’ contributions to today’s cultural landscape.

    Among the speakers are NYU Anthropology Professor RANDALL WHITE and RAPHAËLLE BOURRILLON of the University of Toulouse whose discovery of the earliest form of wall art was reported last fall, a finding that offers rich evidence of the role art played in the daily lives of Early

  • Notre Dame de Paris: Restoring a Double Architectural Icon

  • Apr 9, 2013 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm
  • Location: Italian Academy
  • Description:

    Introduction by Jorge Otero-Pailos and response by Stephen Murray

    Between gothic and classical styles, Notre Dame de Paris was the most accomplished cathedral in Europe in the early 13th century. Seven centuries later, Viollet le Ducs work made it the most emblematic example of 19th century restoration. The Cathedral is a double icon and a masterpiece of both the 13th and 19th centuries, and Benjamin Moutons contemporary interventions challenge us to once again rethink historic preservation for the 21st century. Benjamin Mouton is Chief Architect and Inspector General of Historical Monuments, and his responsibilities include the restoration of Notre-Dame.

    Event presented by the Historic Preservation Program in collaboration with the Richard Morris Hunt Foundation, Columbia Maison Française, and Department of Art and Archeology.

  • Paris in the Springtime Film Series : Mon Oncle by Jacques Tati

  • Apr 9, 2013 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm
  • Location: Central Library, Dweck Center
  • Description:
    The second of the “Monsieur Hulot” films, this 1958 comedy was Jacques Tati’s first color feature. Hulot’s old-world sensibilities clash hilariously with his sister and brother-in-law’s ultramodern home and the mechanized landscape of post-war Paris. Hulot’s free spirit liberates his nephew, Gerard, from the boy’s rigid home environment. Nearly dialogue-free, the film won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar as well as a Special Prize at Cannes. In French with English subtitles.

    This series is made possible through Brooklyn Public Library’s Fund for the Humanities, established through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding was provided by The Hearst Foundation, Inc.; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; The Starr Foundation; the Leon and Muriel Gilbert Charitable Trust; the Henry and Lucy Moses Fund, Inc., and a gift in memory of Samuel and Pauline Wine.
