Sorry for X-Postings.
We would like to invite you to our weekly reading group.

Elsenstr. 52 2.HH 2Etage
12059 Berlin

      *NO-HOW: A critical series of embodied studies or, in other words–
      putting ourselves on the line.*

*Reading Group 2016 | Wednesdays March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, April 6, 13 & 
20, 2016.

This is a weekly meeting for those interested in understanding how we 
are conditioned in different ways. If we consider the possibility of 
actual transformation, first we need to understand ourselves in relation 
to this world.

We will explore our own determination from different perspectives: 
linguistically, socially, sexually, culturally, racially, economically, 
historically, biologically, and more. We will also take into account 
Berlin and the changes that is going through.

Launched by a group of musicians and artists, this experimental series 
starts with a critical standpoint towards current culture and music in 
particular, including the avant-garde, popular and obscure: does music 
contain transformative qualities? Or is it just a soundtrack for our 
fucked up times? Are extreme actions, improvisational approaches and 
noise enough to dismantle our conditioned selves? Or do we need to 
radically reconsider the critical potential of these practices? Can we 
still say no to the unfairness of this world through cultural practices 
or do we need something else altogether?

Each week a text will be proposed which should be read before attending. 
The first part of the meeting will be discussion; here we will 
collectively draw notes and create a ‘score’ to guide us through 
‘embodied exercises’ in the second part of the meeting. We wish to learn 
not only discursively, but through embodied practice, so we can 
experientially understand what experience is. By collectively using 
ourselves -including our bodies- as material for the exercises, we 
attempt to understand our conditioning through action.
