The Jewish 1%: A talk by artist/filmmaker Danielle Durchslag


We are excited to host Danielle Durchslag, an artist and filmmaker whose work explores the social and political implications of Jewish wealth. This is an uncomfortable subject for many Jews, given anti-Semitic tropes, but one she believes needs to examined and discussed. She knows the world of Jewish wealth well; she is a great-granddaughter of Nathan Cummings, founder of the Sara Lee Corporation and a philanthropist who established the social justice-oriented Nathan Cummings Foundation. She grew up in Chicago in a prominent Jewish family, and was active in the Nathan Cummings Foundation for 18 years. She will discuss her experiences and her art, and will show examples, including excerpts from her films.
Bio: Danielle Durchslag is an artist and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been shown at venues including the Jewish Museum, the Toronto Shorts International Film Festival, the Queens Museum, the UK Jewish Film Festival, the Moscow Jewish Film Festival, and the New York Jewish Film Festival. Her short film, Eleanor of Illinois, received a grant from the inaugural cycle of the NYFA Made In NY Women's Film, TV, and Theatre fund. Danielle is a selected fellow of the New Jewish Culture Fellowship. Alongside her solo art practice, she is one half of the artist collective Assembly Required, with artist Ryan Frank, which creates dynamic, contemporary art experiences inspired by the holiday of Sukkot. She studied at Wellesley, The Museum School of Fine Arts Boston, and New York University. www.danielledurchslag.
