In Conversation: Mobilizing Memory and History at Willow Run

This program is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please register to secure your place by emailing umma-program-registration@umich.edu. Please include date and title of program in the subject line of your email.

After a 2013 visit to the once-famed industrial complex Willow Run in Washtenaw County, Michigan, Ernestine Ruben photographed the now-dormant facility, which was designed during World War II by her grandfather, Detroit architect Albert Khan. Join Assistant Curator of Photography, Jennifer Friess, for a conversation about the roles memory and history play in Ruben's photographs and a special screening of the new film Willow Run, which weaves together Ruben's photographs and an original score by composer Stephen Hartke.

Lead support for Ernestine Ruben at Willow Run: Mobilizing Memory is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost and the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment.
