The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama
"On March 19, Simon Schama was joined onstage by Adam Hochschild to talk about The Story of the Jews, Mr. Schama's multimedia account of Jewish history from 1000 BCE to present times. He also showed clips from the five-part PBS documentary series. Although Judaism is the only religion that commands us to remember for future generations, Mr. Schama is determined to portray Jewish history not as a history of suffering or Jews as a people apart. It was an entertaining evening with two charming intellectuals on subjects usually discussed reverentially."

Imperial 'Dreamlike Corridor' Fall/Winter 2014-2015
"Two souls run to each other in a maze of corridors. The claustrophobic atmospheres are interrupted by mirrors where transfigured images lead the viewer to a dreamlike dimension. The young protagonists, a man and a woman, are portrayed in plastic poses. They are romantics and diaphanous and are standing out in long corridors while searching to each other in a timeless space.
"Due anime si rincorrono in un dedalo di corridoi le cui atmosfere claustrofobiche sono interrotte da specchi che trasfigurano le immagini e rimandano lo spettatore a dimensioni quasi oniriche. Ritratti in pose plastiche, i giovani protagonisti, un lui e una lei diafani e romantici, si stagliano nei lunghi corridoi, alla ricerca l’uno dell’altro in uno spazio al di là del tempo."
