Michael Levin presents the secret origins of the Ashkenazim.

Ashkenazi Jews have long been accused of exerting a veiled influence over global affairs and waging shadowy campaigns for world domination. A particularly sensational notion of Ashkenazic conspiracy involves an origin theory that connects the community to the Khazar Khaganate, a vanished empire of the middle ages. Using his painted illumination as a visual guide, Levin outlines the “Khazar Theory” and its peculiar legacy.

 

Boris Rasin presents the secret origins of the Freemasons.

Freemasons have long been accused of exerting a veiled influence over global affairs and waging shadowy campaigns for world domination.  A particularly sensational notion of Masonic conspiracy involves an origin theory that connects the fraternity to the Knights Templar, a religious military order of the middle ages. Using his painted illumination as a visual guide, Rasin outlines the “Templar Theory” and its peculiar legacy.

 

 

Boris Rasin is a Ukrainian-born, New York-based multimedia artist. His drawings, paintings, sculptures, public art installations and political cartoons have appeared in multiple group and solo shows and art festivals. He is a founding member of the street art collective Concerned New Yorkers. Boris Rasin received a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art (’05).

 

Michael Levin was born in Los Angeles, but lives in Brooklyn now. His last work-cycle, a five-year exploration of the culture of Hasidic Judaism, closed with the release of an illustrated book, “Jews of Today,” and a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings at 109 Gallery in Williamsburg. Michael Levin has a BA in Classics from the University of Chicago (‘06) and is pursuing his MFA at Pratt Institute.
