HISK is pleased to invite you to:
A Different Path: Re-Approaching Research In And Through The Arts
(Dit programma zal in het Engels gegeven worden / This programme will be held in English)
Donderdag / Thursday 23.03.2023, 20:00 > 23:00: Artist Talk: Slow Reading Club
Vrijdag / Friday 24.03.2023, 14:00 > 17:00: Reading Session: Anike Joyce Sadiq
Through demonstrations, lectures and reading sessions in which artists introduce their own works and key texts, an unfolding reflection will take shape on how art, intellectual life, and public culture intersect.
Organised by Jeremiah Day, this first in the series of four public sessions invites artists to exemplify and elaborate on research in and through the arts.
The second session will be June 22/23, 2023, followed by September 7/8, 2023 with the final presentation on October 5/6 2023, forming an accumulating perspective on art's potentials, capacities and limits today.
Slow Reading Club is a semi-fictional reading group initiated in 2016 by choreographer Bryana Fritz and artist Henry Andersen. The group deal in constructed situations for collective and individual reading. SRC looks at, probes, and interrupts ‘readership’ as a way to stimulate the contact zones between reader and text, reader and reader, text and text. Slow Reading Club organise large-scale collective reading sessions, make and distribute bootleg publications, produce exhibitions, and give performances. At present they are producing a collectively written road novel set on America’s highways and nourished by its pulp literature.
Anike Joyce Sadiq lives and works in Berlin. Her performative-poetic yet minimalistic conceptual practice interweaves questions concerning the individual and the public with historical, social and spatial site specifics. By the usage of her own body and experience, she not only addresses the „personal as political” but meditates on the logic of representation and on the right to opacity. Her focus lies less on recreating discursive approaches, but rather in setting the frame for experiential relations.
