Lost Chapters of Modernism: Case Studies in Reconstruction | MoMA LIVE

This program features several case studies that explore the reconstruction of modernist works that were either never realized, lost, destroyed, or inherently ephemeral, including guest curator Adrian Sudhalter’s own research on Tristan Tzara’s unrealized Dadaglobe anthology, Dadaglobe Reconstructed.

Other participants include ballet reconstructionists Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer; artist Josiah McElheny; and William Whitaker, Curator and Collections Manager, Architectural Archives, University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Maria Gough, Joseph Pulitzer, Jr. Professor of Modern Art, Department of the History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University, moderates.
