[Reading group] ...have ...word reading group, series 2

We are excited to invite you to ...have ...word, our second series of bimonthly reading groups. In this series we will look into the concrete and spectral forces attempting to govern our languages. Through poetry and essay we will dissect the frameworks that shape the way words act in the world and on our bodies. Questioning what it is to have, to hold, to let go, to be transformed by language.

[Performance] Time had Girl’s back, with Clara Amaral

Join us for Time had Girl’s back, a performance by Clara Amaral. Time had Girl’s back misdirects readership, just like the magician’s hand that draws the audience's attention to one thing in order to distract from another for which secrecy is required. Girl’s body, whilst seemingly disorganised, casts a spell of resistance, proposing another experience of time.

(...) have (...) word  rile* reading group

We are delighted to invite you to join us for (…) have (…) word a bimonthly reading group for word dewellers. We will read from authors who write between linguistic and cultural borders through multilingual, multimodal and multi-vocal poetics. We will attempt to linger in the deformation zones of language: where words become strange, sounds shift away from their signifiers, and meaning begins to warp. We will read poetry, fiction and theory by authors Shahram Khosravi, Theresa Has Kyung Cha, Renée Green, Ahmad Almallah, and Tanya Tag among others.
