Screening of “Techniques of the Body” November 3, 2016, 6:00 p.m. at the Carnegie Council, 170 East 64th Street
HACF will co-sponsor with the Carnegie Council a very special event as Mark Mazower, a member of HACF’s Advisory Council, presents “Techniques of the Body” – a film made from the stories of historian Mr. Mazower and from the artistic perspective of filmmaker Constantine Giannaris. The film explores the memory of war, exile, and massive population movements and asks how we might respond to their impact in the present.

Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven March 2, 2016, at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP
Barbara Drake Boehm and Melanie Holcomb previewed “Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven,” an international exhibition opening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art this Fall, for which they are co-curators.
In words and images, they brought the city of Jerusalem to life – giving voice to the accounts of medieval visitors and introduced some of the great works of art that will travel to New York from more than 60 institutions worldwide for the exhibition. Special focus was given to works of art testifying to the role of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate as protector of Christian holy sites in Jerusalem. A reception followed the presentation.
