Listen as scholars, artists and other creatives discuss Arendt's 1968 publication 'Between Past and Future' in the context of Richard Saltoun Gallery's 'On Hannah Arendt' 12-month exhibition programme.
Organised in collaboration with the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College, and modelled off the Center's own Virtual Reading Group, the first in the series will focus on the preface of Arendt's 1968 publication: 'The Gap Between Past and Future,' held on Wednesday 13 January at 1pm EST / 6pm GMT on the occasion of the gallery's first exhibition in the programme 'The Modern Age', opening on 11 January.
Led by Roger Berkowitz, Founder and Director of the Hannah Arendt Center, the session will feature an introduction by Lyndsey Stonebridge, award-winning scholar and professor of Humanities and Human Rights at the University of Birmingham, followed by a lively discussion on the influence of Arendt on art and culture between invited guests. A Q&A for members of the public to pose questions will conclude the event.
The 'On Hannah Arendt: Virtual Reading Group' is free and open to the public, although donations to the Hannah Arendt Center are warmly welcomed: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/990/bp18/interior.aspx?sid=990&gid=1&pgid=3246&cid=7508
