Julia Miele Rodas, Professor of English, Bronx Community College, City University of New York
Jeff Rosenheim, Joyce Frank Menschel Curator in Charge, Photographs, The Met
Join a Met curator and a disability studies scholar for an interactive conversation that takes a disability perspective on the photographs of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Consider how we define waste and disintegration and explore the Bechers’ work as a form of collecting that echoes autistic aesthetic values.
Presented in conjunction with Disability Pride Month and the exhibition Bernd and Hiller Becher.
Masks are recommended, but not required.
