AUSCHWITZ - BIRKENAU PROJECT

Exhibition from January 11 to 29, 2016
Closing party Thursday January 28 16:30-18:30

Stephen Preece

"The need to produce this body of work stems from the CICAD initiative of inviting educational establishments to visit the Auschwitz Birkenau extermination camps.
As preparation for this trip we were introduced to a holocaust survivor. Mme. Noella Rouget proved to be an incredible little lady still brimming with spirit despite her now considerable age. I was so taken with her testimony that I promised her at the end of the short session to do all in my power to pass on her message : a message which was that of a humanist. After the visit to see this abomination we refer to as Auschwitz-Birkenau, I resolved to develop an educational project to amplify the cries of those who suffered to as broad an audience as possible. These works are my personal contribution to that same broader pedagogical project with the aim that this work will eventually be exhibited alongside the students responses to that same and very profound learning experience.
The works are painted in bitumen a brutal medium using turpentine to dilute. I do not advice that others use the same medium without precautions, on health grounds. It is, however, somewhat appropriate for this topic.
Using the language of art I aim to make society well by provoking intelligent reflection and discussion on hard issues." Stephen Preece

ALUMNI SERIES: Material Sciences

Friday, June 12 2015
from 8:30 to 9:30

William Sacks

Get Friday off to a stimulating start: William Sacks (LGB '75), a physicist from the Sorbonne, will talk to Y12 students about material sciences at 08h30 in the Centre des arts at LGB. Alumni are more than welcome to join!

 

Part of our "ALUMNI SERIES", his visit is an excellent example of how our alumni can contribute to the experience of today's Ecolint students.

William Sacks

 

"From Atoms to Materials: physics, chemistry and biology join forces"

"When I was a student the different subjects (chemistry, physics…) were treated separately from one another with ‘occasional’ connections. In today’s world of rapid innovation, material sciences take centre stage where the key is the strong overlap of different disciplines. These ideas will be exposed in my talk illustrated by both fundamental aspects and useful applications."

William Sacks (LGB '75), UPMC Sorbonne

William Sacks was a participant in our 90-9-90 Project. He has been a Professor of physics at the Sorbonne Universités Paris for the last 30 years. Besides teaching at the university level, he does fundamental research in the field of solid materials. His group, which engages in topics such as minerals and crystals, magnetic materials, proteins, nanometric particles and more, is presently doing theoretical work on novel superconductors. His other duties involve heading a Masters Degree programme of Lab at UPMCabout 60 French and international students, many of whom have been awarded scholarships.
