This month, current artist in residence Monica Mays will be running Rupert’s first monthly reading session. In the session, we will weave together extracts from several authors in relation to her research on locality, care and myth making. We will discuss how the texts can connect to praxis, invoking folk, pre-patriarchal and pagan pasts, in a ‘hereish’ and ‘nowish’, paraphrasing Elizabeth A. Povinelli, to generate forms of emancipatory belonging.
(Materials will be sent via email after the registration).
1. Timothy Morton: Portals
2. Silvia Federici: Reenchanting the World
3. Elisabeth A. Povinelli: Geontologies
4. Agata Marzecova: The vernacular geology of the Baltics
