What: Exhibition of works by Aidas Bareikis

When: Friday, January 22, from 16 p.m.

Where: 307 W 30th St 307 West 30th Street New York, NY 10001

More: Spectropia is an exhibition of new works by the Lithuanian artist Aidas Bareikis. It will feature twenty works from the artist's current Spectropia series. The name comes from the work of J. Brown "Spectropy, or Amazing Illusions, showing ghosts everywhere and of any color." This book was published in 1864 in New York at the end of the American Civil War. Concerned about the growing belief in the "spirit world" and public interest in spiritualism in pre-war America, J. Brown published a book on "optical illusions" or "after-images of ghosts" - phosphenes, internal electrical charges produced by the retina, in the hope of debunking the idea of ​​the reality of ghosts. ... Bareikis draws a parallel between Brown's "ghostly moment" and the phantom state of our time, when archaisms of pre-modern imagery haunt the "moment of the closed eye" of postmodernism.

When: Sunday, January 24, from 18:00

More: The film tells the secret story of small Jewish towns of the former Soviet Union. These cities, or shtetls as they were called, were once home to the largest Jewish population in the world. Only a few survived the Holocaust, and those who survived were in the territory of modern Ukraine and Moldova. In these small and remote towns of the Soviet interior, hidden from the world behind the Iron Curtain, traditional Jewish life continued for decades after disappearing everywhere. Close-knit communities sustained themselves by providing goods and services to their non-Jewish neighbors. Ancient religion, Yiddish language and folklore, ritual cooking and sophisticated craftsmanship have been practiced, preserved and passed down from generation to generation until recently.

The film tells the story of nine completely different people who are now scattered around the world, and once belonged to Jewish and non-Jewish townships. Their memories are a farewell to the vanished world of the shtetl, a mixture of cultures that many peoples once called their home.

Cost: $ 16
