Brahman/i: A One-Hijra Stand Up Comedy Show

4/4-5/4: Thu 7:30 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 4 and 8 PM, Sun 4 PM
phone 312-857-1234 ext. 201

The title character of Aditi Brennan Kapil's Brahman/I is a stand-up comic of ambiguous sexuality—ambiguous, at least, insofar as Anglo-American norms are concerned, there being no viable "other" classification to round out "male" and "female." Born with bonus genitals, this Georgia-reared child of Indian immigrants (favored nickname "B") lived as a boy until puberty started working its magic on him, at which point he found himself opting for makeup and saris. B's mother and the family doctor each tried to get her to declare for one team or the other—Go Penises! Go Vaginas!—but she refused to cut off her options. Literally or figuratively.

4/5-1/4

When Alexander Eisenschmidt moved to Chicago in 2007, the German-born architectural theorist was disturbed by how the city talks about its buildings. Sipping a glass of rosé in the cafe at the Art Institute's Modern Wing, he describes a kind of "museum-ification." ¶ Take, for example, the time architect Rem Koolhaas proposed that his student center at IIT incorporate the Mies van der Rohe–designed Commons Building—it sparked public outrage that the new structure attacked the "purity and simplicity" of the existing architecture. "Preservationists have instilled this attitude in policy makers and politicians," Eisenschmidt says. "If we don't look out, [architecturally] we will be very quickly forgotten." Continue reading >>
