The Other Europe is a penetrating study of the economics
and politics behind the immigration
debate. The film provides a
cross-section of the immigrant
experience, in Spain, Germany, and
England. It argues that the West is
sending a contradictory message to
immigrants: the economic system
indicates there are plenty of jobs that
will pay more than could ever be earned
at home; but the political systems warn
we don’t want you.
Format: After a brief introduction of the film,
it will be viewed followed by dialogue

Sept 4th through Oct 12th
an Exhibition of
Paintings by Max Ginsburg
His work is suffused with the energy of
the city and it’s people: its vendors, its protestors, its
athletes, and musicians. The power of his work stems from both
his belief in the immediacy of a shared, realistic viewpoint and
his strong belief in humanism. His work explores issues of
class, race, and gender and in recent years has gone on to
examine more subtle relationships within society, such as the
way we care for our elderly, our young, and in the wake of 9/11,
notions of patriotism.

Horn’s exhibit, a
combination of photographs and text panels from his book of the
same name, was developed with the support of the Religion,
Conflict, and Peacebuilding Initiative at Emory University in
Atlanta, Georgia. The exhibition and accompanying book grew out
of retracing the route he took through that country in 1970. He
was able to find places and people he had photographed 33 years
earlier, now the survivors of a devastating war, rebuilding
their lives and their country.
