Schemas of Uncertainty is a collective research project on the notion of prediction, both as a long-standing interest of human beings through their histories, but also as inscribed into the techno-capitalist present. The project is organised and facilitated by Danae Io and Callum Copley and has previously taken the form of a cross-departmental research group and symposium at the Sandberg Instituut.
Moving between machine learning, critical theory, tarot readings, astrology, personal narratives, myths, fiction and much else, the book attempts to think through what it might mean to welcome uncertainty as a way of resisting ideas that impose a singular meaning or direction. Through various accounts on predictive practices, it opens up alternate propositions for occupying elsewhere and otherwise.
Book contributions by—Ramon Amaro, Holly Childs, Callum Copley, Flavia Dzodan, Kenric McDowell, Danae Io, Ioanna Gerakidi, Valentina Desideri & Stefano Harney, Emily Rosamond, Bin Koh, Juliette Lizotte, Alice Dos Reis and Tom Kemp.

rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
The bookshop is open from Friday to Sunday from 12:00 to 18:00, by appointment and during our events.
