Free Student Workshop & Docent Tour about "Vedem - The Secret Magazine of the Terezin Ghetto

Vedem, WWII, Holocaust, Workshop, Students, Creative Activism, Creativity, Docent Tour

Come visit the the Vedem Exhibit at the Czech Center Museum.

On view: September 12th, 2017  to November 30th, 2017

 

Vedem’s magazine’s lessons of artistic activism will inspire today’s teens! It’s a chance to use creative means to explore their identity while driving change in their own communities.

Vedem Underground : The Secret Boys Magazine deconstructs and reinterprets the literary work of a secret society of Jewish boys, who created the longest-running underground magazine in a Nazi camp. Using a combination of pop-art graphics, drawings and paintings, and the prose and poetry of teenage prisoners in the Terezin Ghetto, the exhibit breaks down the 83 weekly issues totaling the 800 pages of Vedem (“In The Lead” in Czech”), then reconstructs them in the form of a contemporary magazine.

Through the exhibit, Vedem, which was produced from 1942-44, is recreated as the original ‘zine (hand made magazine), complete with “Masthead,” “Mission,” “Newsroom,” “Printing Press” and “Circulation” sections as well as panels dedicated to subject matter such as “Columns,” “Features,” “Humor” and “News and Editorial” panels.

Vedem Underground enlarges the intimate scale of the original publication while mixing and matching works of art with poetry and prose to create a collage in which Vedem is reinterpreted as a work of artistic activism that remains as relevant today as it did more than 70 years ago.

The Vedem Underground multimedia project examines the historic, cultural and artistic legacy of Vedem, a teen-authored magazine that was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by young Nazi concentration camp prisoners.

Vedem Underground teaches an invaluable lesson that transcends religion, age and eras to secondary-school and college students. Students are able to see how young activists inside the Terezin ghetto fearlessly fought anti-Semitism using their creative expression.

 FREE WORKSHOPS & CLASSES AVAILABLE!

Students participate in journalism workshop that concludes with student creations of hand-made magazines (‘zines).

The workshop is designed to teach middle- through college students both the historic context of Vedem and the art of creating a ‘zine, or hand- made magazine, as a symbol of creative expression, and a way to explore one’s identity through socially-engaged creativity.

They will conclude the course showcasing their work for the community with a ‘zine pop-up exhibit, where they will share ideas and trade their ‘zines.

Solo show exhibit featuring fine art by Reese Lynch

This show explores the juxtaposition of abstract and figurative art. Reese Lynch converges two distinctive styles; cropped realistic forms and doodling. In doing this he hopes to create a viewing experience that is both cohesive and dynamic. The message of this work is open for interpretation.

Reese Lynch grew up in the one-horse town of Goodrich, TX. He became interested in drawing in middle school and from there his passion for art grew. He received his BFA in studio drawing/painting from SFASU and it was there he met his wife Heidi. They now reside in Kingwood, TX with their three children and dog.

The artist won 2nd place award at JoMar Visions Art Excellence 2016 with his piece “Potential”. Reese’s work has shown around Houston, TX, as well as Richmond, VA and Amsterdam.

Zine Fest Houston 2017

T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W

This year the annual Zine Fest Houston event will be at Lawndale
Art Center on Saturday, November 11 from 1-7 PM! Zine Fest Houston 2017
is open to the public free of charge and all ages are welcome. With 100+
vendors and over 1,000 attendees in 2016, the fest continues to grow
apace and 2017 promises to be its biggest year ever.

The theme of this year’s festival is T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W !

This
theme is all about indulging our wildest and most ~aesthetically
robust~ fantasies about our cybernetic future! What does a C Y B E R F U
T U R E look like to you? For those of us who grew up in the 90s, or
spent much of those early consumer PC years immersed in a freshly
created digital universe, we imagined a lush world like the ones in our
coolest screensavers, or that amazing-looking open-world game slash
chatroom we would spend hours in. But what about the DANGERS of
cyberfuture? Will sentient AI rise up and smash the oppressive and
small-minded humans that engineered it? Will we never escape the
all-seeing-eye of targeted advertising until we have to pay-to-play for
ad-free vision?

What do you see when you look into your crystal
ball emoji? C Y B E R U T O P I A, or C Y B E R D Y S T O P I A ? The
future is yours to decide… Now!

Programming during the day
includes “Zine Distros in the Digital Age: Releasing Your Work via
Blockchain” presented by Conner Clifton, a lecture by Houston Anarchist
Black Cross, a live podcast recording with Veer Queer, an all inclusive
LGBTQ+ podcast based out of Houston, TX, and a screening of selected
zine clips as well as a teen zine workshop and animation workshop with

Zine
Fest Houston is a local volunteer-run organization and annual event
dedicated to promoting zines, comics, and other forms of small press,
alternative, underground DIY media and art. It is also a grassroots
attempt to build the local zine, DIY, and alternative media scenes and
form networks with media creators in other areas. ZFH is committed to
providing accessible space to celebrate self-publishing and small
presses, encouraging the distribution of independent art, writing, and
media primarily through the medium of zines. The goal of the event is
for attendees to discover new zines and be inspired to create their own
DIY art and media projects.

Opening Reception: Two Solo Exhibitions: "Fragments of the Paradise" and "Remember, Remember"

Samara Gallery is pleased to present the Solo Exhibitions of Luis Moro and Daryl Gannon

“Fragments of the Paradise”
A Solo Exhibition of works by Luis Moro. “Throughout his extensive career, Luis Moro has created his own world founded upon his intense relationship with nature. His work has developed his fascination with the inexhaustible and mysterious forms of the animal world… From a formal point of view, his is a gestural, loose, figurative, active painting in permanent metamorphosis. Such metamorphosis can be observed not only in the motives behind the work, but also in the painting itself. It journeys from the figurative to the abstract continuously, based on a with a great handling of drawing and color.”
-Ana Martínez de Aguilar


“Remeber, Remember”
A Solo Exhibition of works by Daryl Gannon. “This exhibition was born out of the idea that an act of terrorism and high treason has somehow turned into a day of celebrating. Songs and traditions recall a traitor’s execution by annually re-executing him, all while children sing and dance to the memory of his deeds…These paintings are often in response– or direct contrast– to political events. As each new incident is played out and parsed in the circus of the of the 24-hour news cycle, the more obvious it becomes to even the casual observer how wrong it all seems, how misbegotten our attempts at civil society and equality and truth have unfolded. How far we have strayed, in our constant march towards progress, from actual change. By using toys as symbols, these pieces attempt to hold a mirror to the motivations laid bare by our elected officials, and to the powerful corporate entities delving into our pockets to bolster their bottom line. The child-like drawings, incorporating many of my own childrens’ doodles and toys, hint at playfulness, at the truth so obvious to the child’s eye: how absurd all of this is. And so we cope, like the children who dance and chant, burning effigies of poor Guy Fawkes.”
