CAVEAT reading room #17 - collective reading session

Pay what you can

Grace Ndiritu:
Holistic Reading room

Holistic Reading room (ENG)

Tuesday 25 nov, 19.00, KHG#1
Doors open at 18.00 to see the research archive designed by Grace Ndiritu, in collaboration with Jubilee.

Group reading of Giorgio Agamben’s philosophical book on the law of living together - The Highest Poverty: Monastic Rules and Form-of-Life, which reconstructs in detail the life of the monks with their obsessive attention to temporal articulation and to the Rule, to ascetic techniques and to liturgy.

The reading will be interspersed by silent meditation breaks led by Grace Ndiritu and contextualized by Julie Van Elslande of Jubilee on her research on the lives of the previous monastic inhabitants of the building.

GHENT: HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER

This event is part of GHENT: HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER - A Season of Truth and Reconciliation, a project by artist Grace Ndiritu in the framework of Kunsthal Gent's Development Programme.

Grace Ndiritu examines how the site of the former Caermersklooster, where the interests of the different people and institutions who use or own the site are in conflict, can serve as a model for the practice of commoning. In collaboration with Jubilee.
