"Rothenberg prompts visitors to consider connections between past and contemporary issues of migration. The project is inspired by objects and documents Rothenberg uncovered in the Spertus collection — as well as research she pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, housed in the monumental Tempelhof Airport, a disused site that was designed and built by the Nazis.
Come Join Metro Chicago Hillel at the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning to see Ellen Rothenberg's new Gallery. Following the gallery join Metro Chicago Hillel staff to a free dinner at a local restaurant to further discuss the gallery!
Gallery is free but if interested please register at the spertus website:https://www.spertus.edu/programs-events/ellen-rothenberg
