Thursday 4 June 2020. Event time: 18.00-21.00
Invited Guests: Panos Sklavenitis - Eva Giannakopoulou
The Centre of New Media and Feminist Public Practices transfers its Reading Group series online, Thursdays 18.00 - 21.00 (GR Time, gmt+2). In our reading group, we collectively read and discuss texts that focus on feminist practices, their claims and transformations as well as on public space and globalised economies and technologies. As part of these meetings, we also often invite artists to present works that they are creating in collaboration with the Centre, aiming to a creative dialogue between texts, theory and practice.
Since the reading group meetings that we had arranged in the physical space were interrupted due to the pandemic, we decided to continue in the expanded space of the internet. Our online meetings will take place on 3 upcoming Thursdays, 4th of June, 18th of June and 2nd of July, and they are open to everyone who would like to take part in the discussion.
On Thursday the 4th of June we are presenting two artists’ projects: Untitled (Don Quixote) by Panos Sklavenitis and Proposal for a Female Workers’ Monument (and a tribute to the female Albanian proletariat) by Eva Giannakopoulou. We will also read a draft of an adaptation, based on Don Quixote by Cervantes, as well as excerpts from Donna Haraway’s book ‘Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene’ (2016).
The reading group meetings are happening via Microsoft Teams. Please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com we will forward you specific details of how to sign-in on the day of the meeting.
