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.
Our next session will be held on Monday, November 19, from 7-9PM. We will be reading two essays from Catherine D’Ignazio, Designing for Other (Than Straight, White, Rich Men) and Feminist Data Visualization and the short story The House Made of Sugar written by Silvina Ocampo.
