A Doll for Throwing: When The Self is not The Self

Mary Jo Bang
A Craft Talk with Mary Jo Bang
Date and Time: 
September 30, 2017 - 3:00PM
Event Location: 
Kray Hall
Admission: 
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members

Mary Jo Bang will discuss her new book A Doll for Throwing, for which she invented a ventriloquized persona that incorporates historical figures from the Bauhaus movement (among them, Lucia Moholy and László Moholy-Nagy), personal interiority, biography, and sheer invention. She will also describe her use of artworks and other material as the basis for imagined stage sets, from which speakers address aspects of the world from which they were drawn and urgent issues of the present.
