  1. 6T.J. Clark – Cézanne and the Fetishism of Commodities Session 2 | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Event Date: 31 January 2018

    Room B01,

    Clore Management Centre,

    Birkbeck, University of London.

    London WC1E 7JL

    The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities presents:

    Cézanne and the Fetishism of Commodities – A Masterclass with T.J. Clark: Session 2

    Speaker: Professor T. J. Clark, Visiting Professor at the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities (Oct 2016 – Sept 2019) and Professor Emeritus of Modern Art at University of California, Berkeley.

    Still life was central to Cézanne’s artistic project, and his 20th-century admirers often claimed he had turned the genre into a new kind of history painting. ‘One may wonder,’ wrote Roger Fry, ‘whether painting has ever aroused graver, more powerful, more massive emotions than those… compelled by Cézanne’s masterpieces in this genre.’ Cézanne’s recasting of still life is fully aware of the genre’s bourgeois origins — the Dutch in the 17th century, the accuracy and modesty of Chardin — but his world of objects, and the access to it he provides the viewer, are in the end decisively different from those of his forebears. The ‘objecthood’ of his familiar utensils, bits of drapery, apples and oranges, has an uncanny feel. Focusing on a group of interconnected still lives done by Cézanne in the early 1890s, these classes try to characterize the new ‘atmosphere’ and ontology of the object-world on show, with the aid of the famous discussion of commodity fetishism in Marx’s Capital.

    The Masterclass will be spread over two sessions. The first session will start from Cézanne’s Still Life with Apples (Getty Museum, Los Angeles), trying to characterize the painting’s vision of space and substance, and putting the canvas in relation to other still lives from the early 1890s which deploy the same blue-and-black drapery. The second class will pursue the description of the Getty Still Life, in particular its unique treatment of ‘materials’, calling on Marx and Rilke for help.

    T.J. Clark was born in Bristol, England in 1943, took a B.A. in Modern History at Cambridge, and a Ph.D. in Art History at the Courtauld Institute, University of London. He taught at various places in Britain and the USA, and from 1988 to the present at the University of California, Berkeley, where he is now George C. and Helen N. Pardee Chair Emeritus.

    Clark is the author of a series of books on the social character and formal dynamics of modern art: The Absolute Bourgeois: Artists and Politics in France 1848-1851(1973); Image of the People: Gustave Courbet and the 1848 Revolution (1973); The Painting of Modern Life: Paris in the Art of Manet and his Followers (1984); and Farewell to an Idea: Episodes from a History of Modernism (1999); as well as Afflicted Powers: Capital and Spectacle in a New Age of War (written with ‘Retort’, 2005); The Sight of Death: An Experiment in Art Writing (2006); and Picasso and Truth: From Cubism to Guernica (2013). In 2013 he co-authored (with Anne M. Wagner) Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, a book accompanying an exhibition at Tate Britain. A book-cum-pamphlet on the present state of Left politics, Por uma esquerda sem futuro, based on an essay ‘For a Left with No Future’, originally published in New Left Review, came out in Brazil in 2013.

    For the past several years he has written art criticism regularly for the London Review of Books. He is completing a book entitled Heaven on Earth: Painting and the Life to Come, with chapters on Bruegel, Giotto, Poussin and Veronese; and co-curating an exhibition with Anne Wagner at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, opening in April 2017, called Pity and Terror: Picasso on the Path to Guernica.

    David Cesarani Holocaust Memorial Lecture 2018

    Co-Presents to the Holocaust: The British in Auschwitz and Belsen

    with Professor Tony Kushner (Southampton) and Dr Aimee Bunting (Godolphin and Latymer School)

    Long after 1945, memory of World War II in Britain was not linked to the Holocaust despite an intimate connection. Best known is the liberation of Belsen. More marginalised were the 1400 British prisoners of war in Auschwitz. Our lecture explores how these British liberators and POWS wrote and re-wrote their experiences from 1945 through to the twenty first century, juxtaposing Britishness, Jewishness, universality and particularism through the autobiographical process.

    Introduction by Professor Dan Stone (RHUL):

    ‘On personal recommendation, I used Backdoor Broadcasting to record a podcast of the conference on the city of Granada I organized recently in Cambridge and I am absolutely delighted with the result.

    The recording was carried out to the highest standard, discreetly and efficiently. The podcast was up and available upon my departmental website within hours, and it looks terrific. I was particularly pleased that the Powerpoint slides used by the speakers can also be viewed via the podcast.

    Backdoor Broadcasting is excellent value for money, and provides a unique service in allowing cutting-edge research to be widely available online for the duration, and I would recommend it enthusiastically.’

    The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research and Birkbeck Gender & Sexuality (BiGS) present:

    Seduced and Betrayed: Exposing the Contemporary Microfinance Phenomenon

    Speakers:

    Milford Bateman, Juraj Dobrila University of Pula, CroatiaKate Maclean, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

    Microfinance began as the disbursement of tiny loans to the poor, which they could use to undertake informal income-generating activities. It went on to become one of the most popular international development policies of all time and a mainstay of local development and antipoverty programs across the Global South. The contributors to this multidisciplinary volume consider the origins, evolution, and outcomes of microfinance from a variety of perspectives and contend that it has been an unsuccessful approach to development. The contributors contend that over the last twenty years, microfinance policies have exacerbated poverty and exclusion, undermined gender empowerment, underpinned a massive growth in inequality, destroyed solidarity and trust in the community, and, overall, manifestly weakened those local economies of the Global South where it reached critical mass. They use qualitative anthropological, economic, and political-economic research to unpack the ideas and values that have allowed microfinance to “seduce” the world and blind so many to its corrosive effects.

    The book is based on a National Science Foundation funded weekend-seminar at the School of Advanced Research, UNM, Santa Fe New Mexico in 2012. Participants and contributors include anthropologists Carla Freeman, Lamia Karim and Meena Khandelwal, economists Milford Bateman and Maren Duvendack, as well as scholars from development studies (Phil Mader, Kazia Paprocki, Kate Maclean) and practitioners (Jessica Gordon Nembhard, and Khadija Sharife). The foreword is by James K Galbraith.
