Man & God: Classical music, science, and the creation of colour film - A preview performance

Saturday 26 January 2019, 7.30PM to 9.00pm

For a number of years Professor Michael Berkowitz (University College London, Hebrew & Jewish Studies) has been investigating the historical engagement of Jews and photography.  A major part of this story, in his telling, is the invention of the Kodachrome process by Leopold Mannes and Leopold Godowsky, Jr—otherwise known as Man & God—who were classical musicians, and sons of classical musicians. 

The preview performance will be followed by a Q&A with Professor Berkowitz and the artists.
