May 15: "I am the Ghost" (exhibition and discussion)

Bard College Berlin has the pleasure to invite you to an evening at the crossroads of times, people and places on Tuesday, May 15.

An exhibition of works of art created by students for the seminar Research-Creation: New Approaches to the History of Forced Migration in Germany will frame a presentation and dialogue about the late work of Francisco de Goya (1746-1828).

Nearly two centuries separate these expressions of migration and yet the same worn-out ghost wanders about.

6pm – Opening of the exhibition and refreshments
7pm – Introduction by Marion Detjen and John von Bergen
7.20pm – Presentations by the students
8pm – Presentation by Geoff Lehman followed by a conversation with Norbert Miller about the late work of Goya
8.45pm – Open discussion

We will serve Afghani Burgers and a cake that has made it from Slovenia to Egyptian cookbooks.

Admission free
