Film: The Color of Pomegranates
Wednesday, March 4 | 7:30-9:30 p.m. | PFA Theater

Poster image for The Color of PomegranatesSergei Paradjanov’s paean to his Armenian heritage is an exotic mosaic of the mystical and historical that achieves a surreal effect. In tracing the life of the great eighteenth-century Armenian poet and monk Sayat Nova through his writings, Paradjanov weaves a metaphorical short history of the Armenian nation, telling of Turkish genocide, Persian invasions, and a vast migration to the Russian section in the early twentieth century, all through daringly symbolic imagery. Beyond this the film is an extraordinary artistic rendering of ceremony and ritual, architecture, iconography, and color symbology that, even for the uninitiated, works its extraordinary magic.

 $9.50 General Admission,  $5.50 BAM/PFA Members and UC Berkeley Students,  $6.50 UC Berkeley faculty and staff, non-UC Berkeley students, senior citizens (65 & over), disabled persons, and youth (17 & under)

They humanize and create an emotional appeal in what might otherwise appear to be sterile environments and allow the client to imagine how a space will be used. From the watercolor Victorian to the scalie hipster, this exhibit features more than a century of designers’ representations of people from the Environmental Design Archives.

Exhibit: Close to home yet far away
March 2 – June 12, 2015 every day | 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. | 220 Stephens Hall Stephens Hall

Emiko goes to College painting by Craig NagasawaA painting can reside simultaneously in its material presence—physical, colored minerals, their arrangements on paper or silk—and its illusory presence—the evocation of illusion, forming in the viewer a convincing belief in the presence of space and time. The exchange between the real and the imagined is a perceptual experience where the personal and the public, the local and the foreign can exist simultaneously. Artist Craig Nagasawa uses the techniques of ancient Japanese painting in his work. He reconstructed these time-consuming processes as both a form of resistance to cultural erasure and an acknowledgement of the existence of a space where the personal and the public, the local and the foreign can coexist.



Exhibit: The Secret Language of Flowers
January 27 – June 26, 2015 every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday | 11 a.m.-4 p.m. | Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life (2121 Allston Way)

Botanical drawingIn 1984, The Magnes acquired a portfolio of botanical drawings by Shmuel (Samuel) Lerner, a Ukraine-born amateur artist from California. While Lerner’s biography and many details surrounding this work remain obscure, today his drawings open for us a unique window into the landscape, the history and the languages of Israel in the period immediately following the establishment of the State. The exhibition features a selection of 26 botanical drawings from 1949, complete with the author's annotations about plants, places, and language.

Author talk: Dog Whistle Politics
Thursday, March 5 | 5-6:30 p.m. | Booth Auditorium Boalt Hall, School of Law

Book jacket for Dog Whistle PoliticsRejecting any simple story of malevolent and obvious racism, in Dog Whistle Politics, Boalt School of Law professor Ian Haney López links as never before the two central themes that dominate American politics today: the Republican Party’s increasing reliance on white voters and the destabilization and decline of the middle class—white and nonwhite members alike. He offers a sweeping account of how politicians deploy veiled racial messages to generate middle-class enthusiasm for political candidates who promise to crack down on crime, curb undocumented immigration, and protect the heartland against Ebola, but ultimately vote to slash taxes for the rich, give corporations regulatory control over industry and financial markets, and aggressively curtail social services.

Here is a film about art and the all-conquering power of love. Ashik Kerib, a poor singer and saz (Turkish guitar) player, when denied the hand of the woman he loves, sets out on a ten-year journey. The film recounts the adventures of the wandering minstrel.

Film: The Passionate Thief
Saturday, March 7 | 8:40 p.m. | PFA Theater

Still image from The Passionate ThiefFor The Passionate Thief Totò was reunited with his revue costar of the forties, Anna Magnani, whom he revered. An adaptation of two novels by Alberto Moravia, this beautiful film depicts the failed illusions of two broken-down bit players at Cinecittà. The marvelous Magnani portrays a hapless would-be actress who becomes implicated in a theft by a retired extra (Totò) and a young pickpocket (Ben Gazzara) with whom she falls in love. Time Out New York called this, one of Monicelli’s most beloved comedies, “fun and frothy . . . It’s like a long night of champagne without the hangover.”

Film: Big Deal on Madonna Street
Saturday, March 7 | 6:30 p.m. | PFA Theater

Still image from Big Deal on Madonna StreetThis spoof on the caper thriller à la Rififi shows with satiric precision just what happens when real human beings attempt the “perfect heist.” Here we have several individuals, united by their desperate need for money, attempting to rob a neighborhood jewelry store in Rome. All are far too human for their own good. The greatest humanist of the gang is the renowned safecracker Dante (Totò), who delivers an incomprehensible lecture in heistmanship and then wisely heads for high ground. Unlike these boys, Monicelli’s timing is flawless and the film moves apace to a climax worthy of Buster Keaton.

 $5.50 BAM/PFA members; UC Berkeley students,  $6.50 UC Berkeley Faculty, Staff, and Retirees; Non-UC Berkeley Students; Senior citizens (65 & over); Disabled Persons; Youth (17 & under),  $9.50 General Admission

Workshop: Wikipedia art+feminism edit-a-thon
Saturday, March 7 | 11 a.m.-4 p.m. | 340 Moffitt Undergraduate Library

Edit-a-thon graphic posterWikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. The reasons for the gender gap are up for debate; suggestions include leisure inequality, how gender socialization shapes public comportment, and the sometimes contentious nature of Wikipedia’s talk pages. The practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. Let's change that. Join a collaborative edit-a-thon of Wikipedia entries on subjects relating to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedians, reference materials, and refreshments. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation.

Film: Arabesque on the Pirsomani Theme and The Rebel
Sunday, March 8 | 3 p.m. | PFA Theater

Filmmaker ParadjanovArabesque on the Pirosmani Theme is a poetic meditation on the work of the Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani (1862–1918). The Rebel is a portrait of Sergei Paradjanov as a filmmaker, designer, and collage artist, made at the time when he was shooting his last film, Ashik Kerib. Filmed in Tbilisi, Yerevan, and Paris, this documentary includes archival footage and interviews reflecting upon the artist’s pluralistic view of the Caucasian people and their cultural traditions. Cazals also considers Paradjanov’s successive terms of imprisonment by the Soviet government and the artist’s strength of spirit

Symposium: Disability incarcerated
Monday, March 9 | 9:15 a.m.-8 p.m. | Booth Auditorium rm 175 Boalt Hall, School of Law

Logo for Disability Incarcerated eventThis symposium brings together editors and other scholars, students, activists, and community members to map the intersections of policing, imprisonment, and the disabled body. The event seeks to step into the void within critiques of the “prison industrial complex” - namely the absence of discussion of disability oppression, despite the disproportionate representation of people with disabilities within prisons and gated institutions. The day of speakers, starting with Angela Davis and the three editors of Palgrave Macmillan’s Disability Incarcerated (2014), Liat-Ben Moshe, Allison Carey, and Chris Chapman, will also include two films, HEARD’s “Deaf in Prison” and Karen Nakamura’s “Bethel.” The Sins Invalid Performance Project will perform a new piece especially curated for this event, “Disability Liberated: Mourn the Dead and Fight Like Hell for the Living.”



Lecture: Frans de Waal on prosocial primates
Monday, March 9 | 2:30-4 p.m. | Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center

Frans de WaalFrans de Waal, world-renowned primatologist and one of Discover magazine's "47 Great Minds of Science," is a pioneer in the study of the evolutionary basis of empathy and kindness. In this talk, he will explore the evolutionary roots of empathy and sympathy--and consider why this discovery has received relatively little attention. He'll consider two factors that might explain this lack of little attention. One is that evolutionary biology, until recently, preferred a "nature red in tooth and claw" view that had no place for kindness. The second has been an excessive fear of anthropomorphism and a taboo on the term "emotion" in relation to animals.



Lecture: Tarek Atoui, DeafSpace and making musical instruments
Monday, March 9 | 7:30-9 p.m. | David Brower Center, 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley

Tarek AtouiAtoui, an electro-acoustic musician who initiates and curates multidisciplinary interventions, events, concerts and workshops in Europe and the Middle East, will present several of his ongoing projects each of which propose original methods for making instruments and the possibilities they open in terms of collaboration, performance and composition. In the Dahlem Sessions and the Reverse Sessions, Atoui inverted the order in which instruments are usually created, using the sounds of a collection of ethnic musical instruments located in the Dahlem Museum of Ethnology in Berlin as a starting point for imagining and building new instruments. This project was first presented in the 2014 Berlin Biennial and expanded in a solo exhibition presented at kurimanzutto gallery in Mexico City. For his MATRIX project at BAM/PFA, Atoui will build on WITHIN, a project that he initiated in Sharjah (UAE) in 2013, which is based on a series of conversations and collaborations with students from a school for the deaf.

Colloquium: Body burdens
Monday, March 9 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 575 McCone Hall | Note change in date

Vanessa Agard-JonesFor the past half century, toxicologists and environmental activists have used the term “body burden” to describe the accumulated amount of harmful substances present in human bodies. In recent years, “charges corporelles” have emerged as part of the popular conversation in Martinique, a French territory in the Caribbean where Dr. Agard-Jones conducts ethnographic research. Chlordécone, a pesticide once used widely on the island’s banana plantations, has been identified as the source of rising levels of estrogen-like chemicals in the environment and its presence in contaminated soils and foods has been linked to both male infertility and prostate cancer. This talk will investigate the relationship of racialized and gendered bodies to their environments in Martinique and the effects of colonial violence. Dr. Agard-Jones will highlight the particular vulnerabilities, as well as the contradictory assemblages of power, that body burdens reveal in postslavery societies.



Lecture: How Russian came to loathe the West
Monday, March 9 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 270 Stephens Hall

Maria LipmanIn the Soviet Union of the late 1980s opening up to the West looked like a natural path to prosperity and democracy. In post-Soviet Russia, the attempt to emulate western models has ended in public disappointment. The collapse of the Soviet empire left Russia in limbo: too large and ambitious to ever become a mere member of the European alliance, yet lacking the attraction to form a strong alliance of its own. The story of Russia's disillusionment with the West is inseparable from Russia’s struggle to build a post-communist nation. Vladimir Putin was no isolationist, but the West's power kept him apprehensive and its policies deepened his suspicions. The risk of losing Ukraine to the West pushed Putin to make a radical and reckless choice.

Film: Wavemakers
Tuesday, March 10 | 7-9 p.m. | PFA Theater

Poster image for WavemakersWhile you may never have heard of the Ondes Martenot, you may have heard the evocative tones that emit from this unique electronic instrument. Its distinctive timbre has been heard on the sci-fi TV show Thunderbirds as well as feature films from Lawrence of Arabia to There Will Be Blood. Wavemakers tells the story of the French musician and educator Maurice Martenot, a telegraph operator during World War I, who was transfixed by the sounds emanating from radio vacuum tubes. He spent the rest of his life perfecting his ondes, an instrument that converts electricity into music, and one so mysterious that its secrets are still being unraveled.

Berkeley book chat: Risk and Rationality
Wednesday, March 11 | 12-1 p.m. | Geballe Room, 220 Stephens Hall Stephens Hall

Jacket image for Risk and RationalityUC Berkeley professor of Philosophy Lara Buchak specializes in decision, game, and rational choice theory. Her new book Risk and Rationality (Oxford, 2013) analyzes the principles governing rational decision-making in the face of risk and how an individual takes risk into account when making a decision. Her theory isolates the distinct roles that beliefs, desires, and risk-attitudes play in decision-making. Risk and Rationality is in many ways a vindication of the ordinary decision-maker, particularly his or her attitude towards risk, from the point of view of even ideal rationality.
