The Fraught Crossroads
where race and class keep intersecting across American History, and who gets to address them | Sunday, Oct 22, 2017
“Race in the U.S.” is The New School's second University course on post-election America, and is sponsored by the Provost's Office and the 2017 Henry Cohen Lecture Series of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy.
On October 11th, 2017, Weschler presented Fraught Crossroads - the terrible intersection where race, class, sex and violence keep colliding across American History—and who gets to address it (with special reference to the controversial cases of Ed Kienholz harrowing 1970 lynching tableau, “Five Car Stud,” and the more recent controversy surrounding Dana Schutz’s Whitney Biennial contribution).
