Poetry & Art: Ellen Rothenberg & Cecilia Vicuña 


In conjunction with Ellen Rothenberg’s exhibition ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant at the Spertus Institute, Cecilia Vicuña presents a series of performances and interventions on movement, migration, and human rights. Vicuña is a poet, an artist, a filmmaker, and an activist whose work often addresses pressing concerns of the modern world, including ecological destruction, human rights, and cultural homogenization. Rothenberg’s exhibition is inspired by objects and documents she uncovered in the Spertus collection as well as research she pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, housed in the monumental Tempelhof Airport, a disused site designed and built by the Nazis.
