Cities in Crisis: Ecological Transformations - Cooper Union- The Great Hall
March 18, 2013 - New York

On the one hand, cities can be the epitome of sustainability, reaping the benefits of proximity, efficiency, and innovation. On the other hand, they can be graveyards of dreams and sources of contamination. In Cities In Crisis: Ecological Transformations, six lectures at The Cooper Union, Dr. Steward Pickett, past President of the Ecological Society of America and a plant ecologist with the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will present an integrated view of cities from an ecological perspective and explore the frontiers of promoting the transformation of a more sustainable urban trajectory. February 11: Globalization and the Changing City - What is urbanism? What is urban from an ecological perspective? How is the urban reality evolving in a global era? What is the nature of contemporary urban crisis? How can that crisis be met as an opportunity? February 18: Cities as Ecosystems - How do ecologists think about cities? What ecological processes occur in cities? What’s wrong with the idea of open space in cities? February 25: Natural Disturbance and the City - How common is natural disturbance in the urban context? What is the nature of natural hazard in cities? How does this play out in terms of social and other kinds of vulnerability? March 4: From Sanitary to Sustainable City - How did the “sanitary city” solve social and environmental problems? What are the limits to the sanitary strategy? How does the sustainable city envision solving the problems of the sanitary city, or even of cities that are created from scratch? March 11: Ecology for Urban Design - What does ecology have to say to urban design? What ecological principles underwrite ecological urban design? How do the ethics of sustainability shape ecological application in cities? March 18: A Land Ethic for the Urban Era - Does Aldo Leopold’s ethical viewpoint apply to cities? Is there a problem with our contrast between wilderness and “urbanness”? How do we facilitate the benefits of cities and incorporate them into ethical urban thinking?

But what sets her apart is not only the low-pitched and sensual tone, so unique – Ana Moura instantaneously transforms any melody to which she lends her voice, into Fado. It's an immediate spark, an emotional explosion aimed ruthlessly to the listener's heart.

Director, screenwriter, and artist Harmony Korine has developed an aesthetic as unique and bracing as any that launched in the heyday of 1990s American independent film.

From March 8 through 22, 2013, Museum of the Moving Image will present a retrospective of all of Korine's five feature films to date, including his latest, Spring Breakers—a triumph at both the Toronto and Venice film festivals. Harmony Korine will appear in person with the Museum's preview screening of Spring Breakers on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm, participating in a conversation moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz after the film. Korine's latest is a high-concept pulp-fest featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as co-eds who perform a catalogue of illegal and incendiary activities in order to get out of their boring small town for spring break. Also starring James Franco, the film opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on March 15 (nationwide on March 22), released by A24 Films. In addition to Spring Breakers (2013) and Gummo (1997), the Museum retrospective includes Mister Lonely (2007), Korine's largest production to date and which features art cinema luminaries Diego Luna, Werner Herzog, Denis Lavant, and Samantha Morton cast as celebrity impersonators; the critically acclaimed Julien Donkey-boy (1999); and the cult hit Trash Humpers (2009), which film critic J. Hoberman called a "gloriously desultory slap in the face of public taste." Together, these films reveal the eccentricities as well as the depth of one of the most compellingly divisive directors working today.

All shows start at 8pm sharp @ The Collapsible Hole (146 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211) THE SHOW - The Pinks is an original, darkly comic spy story about real life Confederate spy Rose Greenhow, a woman in a traditionally male profession, and the Pinkerton agents set on taking her down. In 1861, the Civil War was just a rebellion gaining traction (think: The Tea Party with more guns and matching outfits). A widow and mother of four, Rose used her extensive social network (and extensive charm) to seduce information from senators, military and members of the presidential cabinet to pass on to the Confederacy. She was devastatingly good. Enter Allan Pinkerton. Pinkerton was a hard-boiled detective, the first of his kind. He was an abolitionist who had worked on the Underground Railroad and offered his detective skills to Abraham Lincoln in service of the Union. Pinkerton suspected Rose was a spy and sent the first female private eye Kate Warne, another woman in a traditionally male profession, undercover to catch her. Once undercover, the lines between hero and villain blur as the people across the political divide come into focus. While foiling the Pinkertons efforts to find proof against her, Rose manages to seduce secret information from a northern captain. If the information can be passed to General P.G.T. Beauregard it will turn the Battle of Bull Run and change the course of the war. In the end, neither house arrest nor federal prison will stop Rose from pursuing her southern ideals. Drawing on graphic novels and film noir, Gold No Trade uses its signature physical style to uncover the fascinating history of two unknown American women. "The Pinks" is a tautly written historical fiction that examines the deeper drives behind Allan Pinkerton and two women: Kate Warne, the first female detective and Confederate spy Rose Greenhow. The play considers how these women, both in traditionally male professions, chose alternate paths to express equally devastating talents. And how only one was able to bridge that divide and tolerate the beliefs of the other. Rose Greenhow : A widow and mother of four in 1861, Rose Greenhow began passing secret messages to Confederate generals, helping to secure the Southern victory at Bull Run. She was placed under house arrest by the Pinkertons to curtail her activities, but continued to pass Northern military secrets to the South. She was then placed in a federal prison, but is rumored to have still managed to pass information to the South. In 1862, Jefferson Davis sent her to Europe to collect diplomatic intelligence. She also fund-raised extensively for the Confederacy and returned home carrying over $2000 in gold, some of which she sewed into her clothing. Off the coast of North Carolina, a Union gunboat pursued her ship, and Rose boarded a lifeboat. The small craft foundered and she drowneddragged down by the weight of the gold. Kate Warne : Little is known about Kate Warne, the first female detective hired by Allan Pinkerton. Most of her biographical information comes from Allan Pinkerton's Reminiscences years after the fact and has not been corroborated. He describes Kate the first time she walked into his office in 1856 as "a slender, brown-haired woman, graceful in her movements and self-possessed. Her features, although not what could be called handsome, were decidedly of an intellectual casther face was honest, which would cause one in distress instinctly (sic) to select her as a confidante" Accounts vary as to whether she came to Pinkerton for a job as a secretary or a detective, but Pinkerton remembers her convincingly explaining that she could "worm out secrets in many places to which it was impossible for male detectives to gain access". Pinkerton not only hired her, but by 1860 his agency had an entire female detective branch, headed by Kate Warne. To compare, women were first hired as investigators by the New York City police department in 1903. Allan Pinkerton : In 1852 Allan Pinkerton created The Pinkerton National Detective Agency the first private agency devoted to solving crime. In 1856 he hired the first female detective, Kate Warne, of whom little is known (see above). Pinkerton was a labor activist in his native Glasgow and worked the Underground Railroad outside of Chicago. His agency stymied train robbers, captured thieves and, in 1861, foiled an attempt on the life of president-elect Abraham Lincoln. The term "private eye" derives from his agency's trademark: an unblinking eye with the slogan "We Never Sleep." After his death, his sons took over the agency and closed the female detective branch. In time, the agency became known for anti-labor activities. The Pinks is a work of historical fiction. While it is unknown whether Kate Warne and Rose Greenhow ever met, we like to think they did.
