Cliché and Ketman: Post-Truth and Delicate Translation

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:30pm-7:00pm

As internationalism fades and world leaders praise the "principle of sovereignty," the media that convey international communication consolidate the algorithms that give them their forms. Though violently conflicting ideologies in this environment should yield violently differing forms of expression, technology congeals the languages of actual enemies into virtual twins. This, as always, is very evident in the politics and practice of translation. Google Translate and its kin force language into set forms, and subtleties meant to convey authorial complicity get spiced and diced into many different packages. Underneath lies the fact that when all communication is publication, authors of all types frequently must protect themselves with the sheen of false complicity—"ketman" in Czesław Miłosz's famous Cold War essay.

Visual Arts Lecture Series: Conversation with Eve Aschheim and Richard Whitten

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Barbara Walters Gallery

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm

Eve Aschheim is an abstract painter and draftsperson who seeks to create dynamic structures that exist between categories of thought. Her interests include implied motion, states in the midst of change, and a fictive reality that exists between multiple visual constructions. Along with her resistance to making a nameable image, she also attempts to make a memorable visual experience that cannot be corralled by memory. Aschheim’s recent work with photograms allow her to experiment with “drawing in the darkroom” using objects, elements drawn or painted on translucent mylar, and tools including prepared flashlights.
