The Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center and Hillel have arranged for the Newman Library to host “When Humanity Fails“, an exhibition on loan from the Afikim Foundation. As the exhibition web site notes, “One Soul: When Humanity Fails exhibition fills the growing schism that is arising between the dying generation of survivors and the new generation of youth that is struggling to comprehend the depths of evil that abounded in the Holocaust. While Holocaust education has certainly grown in importance, the method by which it is taught focuses on the death and destruction without teaching students about the lessons that can be learned and how their emotional and intellectual responses can be channeled into constructive action and awareness.” The exhibition will be on display in the Engelman Reading Room through December 2, 2014.

It may have been the glimpse of a video that caught your eye as you rushed off to the elevator. Or maybe it was a brightly colored sign that caused you to pause on the way to checkout. Or maybe you saw students clustered around a screen on the 3rd floor and wondered… what are those New Media Artspaces?
By renovating the old pay phone booths in the library, the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and Newman created innovative exhibition space for the New Media Arts program. Underexposed, the first exhibition by the first cohort to complete the New Media Arts minor at Baruch, presents works in a range of media such as single channel video, animation, and photography. Playing through August, Underexposed celebrates our New Media students while raising the profile of the arts at Baruch College.
Check out the current exhibition at the Artspace on each floor of the library, and expect more curated interdisciplinary artworks by international artists, students, alumni, and faculty showcased there soon.
