In conjunction with ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant, experience an evening of readings and performances by writer and translator Nathanaël, artist and translator Jennifer Scappettone, and writer and code artist Judd Morrissey.

Spertus Institute has commissioned a site-specific installation by internationally-acclaimed, Chicago-based artist Ellen Rothenberg. Entitled ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant, it will be on view in the Institute’s Ground Level Gallery through April 22, 2018. With this work, Rothenberg prompts visitors to consider connections between past and contemporary issues of migration. The project is inspired by objects and documents that Rothenberg uncovered in the Spertus collection — as well as research she pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, currently housed in the monumental Tempelhof Airport, a disused site that was originally designed and built by the Nazis.


Spertus is pleased to partner with:
Poetry Foundation
This program is partially supported by a grant from the
Illinois Arts Council Agency.
