Entering into Relation with an Object

2016–2017
reading group with Miriam Wistreich

Entering Into Relation With an Object was an ongoing exploration that evolved from a shared curiosity toward objects: their proliferation, status and possible lives. Through a series of performative reading events and exhibitions centred on the perceptual worlds of non-human beings, objects and machines, the project aims to find a sustainable critical stance towards the objects that surround us.
