Building Platforms

Unpacking our Libraries

This format consists of a reading circle. Platform participants will offer readings from the pop-up library, which has been collectively gathered and integrated into the platform structure. Guest participants are also invited to share their own readings (or writings). The only rules are: never interrupt the reader, take no more than 5 minutes, and always respond with another reading. These readings will be accompanied by the production of quick and rough visual outputs that will interpret and combine the content of the various excerpts.
