UB Lecture Series: Staging Fascism: Contemporary Artistic Practice and Rationalist Urban Space

  • University at Buffalo, Anderson Gallery 1 Martha Jackson Place Buffalo, NY 14214 United States (map)

This panel tackles the complex interrelation between artistic practices and their historically charged subjects in urban environments. Three of the participating artists, Eiko Grimberg (Berlin), Heidi Specker (Berlin), and Caterina Borelli (Rome), and UB faculty from the departments of Art (John Opera), History (Camilo Trumper), and Architecture (Charles Davis) discuss tensions and ambivalences at sites that once served as propagandistic stage sets of Fascist power. How can artists, historians, and architects address these issues as critical observers rather than accomplices?

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. There are three (3) AIA learning units available for those who attend.
