conversations

postfactum has a reading group convene. Its main purpose is to engage cross-disciplinary discussion of recent and classic texts, canonical or critical, of particular relevance to contemporary art, science, and technology. For each meeting, postfactum invites conversation with the “author(s)” and/or “critics” of the selected text. A first series of meetings – “in conversation with” as well as “in conversation on” – has been scheduled for winter 2018/19. As the readings proceed, further meetings, texts, arguments, and encounters will be determined. In the meantime, postfactum welcomes additional proposals from interested parties.
