A Doll for Throwing: When The Self is not The Self

A Craft Talk with Mary Jo Bang

Sep 30, 2017 | 3:00 pm

Mary Jo Bang

Mary Jo Bang will discuss her new book A Doll for Throwing, for which she invented a ventriloquized persona that incorporates historical figures from the Bauhaus movement (among them, Lucia Moholy and László Moholy-Nagy), personal interiority, biography, and sheer invention. She will also describe her use of artworks and other material as the basis for imagined stage sets, from which speakers address aspects of the world from which they were drawn and urgent issues of the present.

Admission $10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members Location Kray Hall Sponsored By Poets House
