The Unforgettables Reading/Working Group
January 21, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Unforgettables Reading/Working group is a series of open to the public monthly meetings at the A.I.R. space running since late 2016, initiated by artist Ofri Cnaani and A.I.R. Executive Director Roxana Fabius. This group, formed by readers/workers from several disciplines and walks of life, brings to the front a combination of texts, artworks, and films. Every month the group looks at historic feminist and queer manifestos, science fiction, new feminist fiction writings, and theory pieces that help to imagine a future where no-one is forgotten.
Each session is led by a different member of the group, empowering the attendants to learn, and publicly share their thoughts with others. The Unforgettables Reading/Working Group embraces its origins, accepts the mistakes of the past, and aims to become more inclusive. We invite everyone to study, converse, and work together. Studying side by side, the group works on A.I.R.’s non official horizontal and updated feminist library. An unusual unforgettable one.
We are looking forward to starting the new year with a session of the Unforgettables on January 21st at 7pm
The session will be lead by Sarah Demeuse, curator, translator and writer who together with Prem Krishnamurthy curated the 13th A.I.R. Biennial “Let’s try listening again.”
The session will focus on texts about forms of understanding, many of which non-verbal ones. The aim is the unpack what listening, as a practice, may mean in an expanded sense.
We will be reading:
Ursula Le Guin “Life on the Frontier”
Camilla Grudova “Unstitching”
And Clarice Lispector “The Smallest Woman in the World”
We look forward to seeing you all on January 21st at 7pm.
