“How to Buıld a House From Letters”
Shulamit Bruckstein shares material from her artistic, theoretical, and curatorial practice – how to “build a house made all from letters.” She develops an epistemic architecture indebted to the ancient rabbis, and to medieval mysticism, but also to 20th century giants such as art historian Aby Warburg, Sigmund Freud, Walter Benjamin, and a number of female theorists such as Luce Irigaray and Hélène Cixous. Bruckstein will share and discuss a visual narrative from her recent exhibition works.
