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.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 18.30h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.

rile* is excited to announce a series of monthly reading groups in 2021. Now more than ever we find it necessary to carve out spaces for exchange; spaces for being and thinking together. Many of us have found reading a vital companion throughout 2020's tumultous turns, a life line perhaps, into worlds different from the ones we find ourselves stuck in.
Starting in January 2021, the last wednesday of each month we invite you to join us at rile* to read together. No preparatory reading is required. We will gather around a text and an invited guest will guide us through the authors work; opening questions for us to delve into together.
If it will not be possible to gather in person at rile* we will take to zoom or an alternative online format. Check back here for more information.
(Last Wednesday of each Month 12h00-13h30)
