An inquest into the moment's endurance features a series of readings and film critique discussions curated for the pandemic's moment, with themes varying between anxiety, endurance, isolation and death. Each session will require readings and viewings before attendance, and all materials will be provided in advance.
The workshop will be conducted in parallel with Tamara Nassar’s IOTAWIP residency project Absentee on the Couch, described as a permanent editorial practice, a perpetual state of interrogation, an exchange of roles, an exercise in epistolary writing.
Internet of Things: Another World is Possible (IOTAWIP) is an exhibition project facilitating a collective inquiry from (and through) the quarantine. Navigating online and offline. Traversing temporalities. It is an invitation for reflecting on the Situ, from our active positions behind the screens. Deconstructing the crisis, contingency, social structures, cyberspace, memes, anxiety, technology, geography and body-politics. From live stream to news feed. From the medium and its discontents, to the state of emergency.
