In his magnum opus, Gravity’s Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon introduces us to the German concept of Brenschluss in the telemetry of the flight of the V2 rocket. The rocket is propelled by its engines and travels along its parabolic arc. At a certain point the engines turn off, this flameout is called brenschluss. At brenschluss the rocket’s ascendancy is checked by gravity, and before it begins to fall to its target on earth, it hesitates for just a moment. After this moment gravity and momentum alone, not a rocket engine, define the inexorable trajectory of descent to its inevitable, calamitous end. (READ MORE.)

Harvey Stein has been a fixture on the New York photo scene for many years. He has photographed the city from every angle with every kind of camera, at every time of day and night. Beyond these shores he has led photographic seminars and workshops all over the world…He’s gone everywhere, and for the last 40 years he’s been going to Coney Island…where New York City flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the end of Ocean Avenue, in Brooklyn.

NYFA’s Curatorial Program Presents:
A Feminist Tea Party
Monday, April 11 – Friday, April 15, 2011
Free and open to the public
NYFA is pleased to announce A Feminist Tea Party, a week-long residency event presented through NYFA’s Curatorial Program.
A Feminist Tea Party at NYFA is Caitlin Rueter and Suzanne Stroebe’s first solo exhibition for their collaborative project A Feminist Tea Party. A Feminist Tea Party lies somewhere between a performance, an installation and a participatory event. Rueter and Stroebe will be welcoming guests for tea, sweets and informal conversation daily in the NYFA Gallery from 12 noon until 5 o’clock during the week of April 11th, 2011.
Provoked by the Tea Party protests, A Feminist Tea Party recasts the “tea party” as a playful, progressive, inquisitive and inclusive space. At its inception, the project was only meant to last for an afternoon. It has now continued for over a year, and is constantly re-imagined as it finds new audiences, spaces, and participants.
Stroebe and Rueter revisit the consciousness-raising groups of the 1970′s in the set of a midcentury tea party. Rather than recreating the exclusive environment of the historical consciousness-raising groups, or the homogeneous scene typical of the historical tea party, they include a wider cast of discussants, conflating the past and present to create an environment where essential and discomfiting issues can be discussed freely and with a sense of humor.
Each day a different co-host or team of co-hosts will introduce a discussion or event, engaging guests in casual conversation surrounding a topic related to feminism that they have chosen for this space. Please see below for a schedule.
Everyone is welcome to participate regardless of your gender, your political persuasion or
Schedule of events:
Monday April 11, 2-4pm
Tuesday April 12, 2-4pm
Wednesday April 13, 4:30-6pm
Thursday April 14, 2-4pm
Friday April 15, time TBA
