9338 Campau says
In this series of discussions we will examine the relationship between memory and the state of Detroit from a psychological, historical and societal perspective.

On Weds April 15: artist and documentarian Kate Levy will talk about her project to map the de-industrialization of Detroit through the history of industrial auctions from the 1950's onwards. The project has a personal dimension for Levy since her family built a significant global business as the predominant auction house in the city. She uses her project to examine the collective memory of de-industrialization alongside specific family memories.

Artist and documentarian Kate Levy uses extensive place-based research to explore issues of social justice through video, photography and artist books. Her projects have addressed water and gentrification issues in Detroit, the impact of the oil boom on North Dakota, and land ownership issues in Kenya. She has an MFA in Advanced Photography from ICP-Bard in New York.

Note that this discussion is in conjunction with Hamtramck historian Greg Kowalski, and the Hamtramck historical museum
