Now forming: a monthly Deleuze & Guattari reading group.  We will 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.  To begin with, we will read and discuss select chapters or passages from Deleuze & Guattari’s A Thousand Plateaus, and orient ourselves around central concepts (such as the rhizome, the Body Without Organs, Becoming) and topics (such as language, capitalism, fascism), as well as incorporating the specific interests of the group.  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
