Tragedy, Comedy, Versace: A Look at Jews, Identity, and the Creation of American Materialism
Sunday, November 22, 2015 @ 8:30 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
In collaboration with Tablet Magazine
Contrary to some people’s conception, Jews aren’t ONLY people of the book. From the immigrants who birthed the contemporary fashion industry to the modernists who fled Hitler to create the modern American home, Jews have been at the center of nearly every industry devoted to the “stuff” of the American dream. But why? And more importantly, what does their involvement mean—for Jews, and for America? Find out from moderator More: Alana Newhouse, founder and editor in chief of Tablet Magazine; authors Joshua Cohen, Bob Morris, and David Samuels; and visual artist Gillian Laub.
