Monthly Deleuze & Guattari reading group. We gather to read together and discuss, question, and critically examine the reading and the ways in which it connects to our lives and practices. Think book club + seminar + artist talk + more. Currently, we are reading and discussing select chapters and passages from Deleuze & Guattari’s A Thousand Plateaus to orient ourselves around central concepts, such as the rhizome, the Body Without Organs, and Becoming and topics, such as language, capitalism, fascism, while at the same time, we are incorporating the specific interests of the participants. All levels and backgrounds are welcome, from curious first-time readers to folks who have been engaging with the material over a long period of time.
Tuesday, July 9, 6:30 – 8-30 pm — for the first meet-up
And the second Tuesday of the month thereafter
