The next in our series
The text we’ve chosen is Martha Nussbaum’s “Objectification“
Reading Loop begins again on Thursday May 1st at 7pm, at FAGANS (Broad Lane) with Slavoj Zizek’s paper, ‘Descartes and the Post-Traumatic Subject’.
We’re going to use the first session to discuss whether Thursday evenings are the best time and also think about where we’d like our regular venue to be.
Over the last few weeks, a number of people have mentioned the reading loop to me and asked if we might start it up again…..
So – we thought we’d celebrate the arrival of spring with a fresh series, kicking off – on Thursday May 1st at 7pm, with Slavoj Zizek’s paper, ‘Descartes and the Post-Traumatic Subject’.
The venue is yet to be confirmed. Any ideas or offers of a temporary reading loop home, please email Amanda : firstname.lastname@example.org
The next reading loop will be a planning session, looking at our forthcoming exhibitions (June 22-30) and the installation we hope to create between the spaces. So no reading in advance – just ideas 🙂
Meet at the Rutland Arms – not bloc!
The text chosen for next week is ‘Art and Money’ by Boris Groys.
Venue: Bloc, studio 49
The next reading loop (Wednesday, May 2nd, 7pm, Bloc studios) will be a more experimental workshop, thinking through how a wasteland might be re-thought (and perhaps re-made?) through sound. We’ll be asking not ‘What do we want to see in this space?’, but: ‘What do we want to hear in this space?’ The discussions will feed in to the broader project to develop a live project in a wasteland in the Shalesmoor area of Sheffield.
The session will be led by Adam Denton and Richard Moran.
There is no set text as such for this week; rather, we suggest a variety of materials into which you might like to dip your toes before we start sharing and discussing our ideas!
Stockhausen and the serial shaping of space (particularly the first 74 pages) –
The next reading loop will be at 7pm, Weds 25 April, Bloc Studios.
The text is Michael Hardt’s ‘Affective Labor’ (inspired by the Affective Reading group at Site).
