No Reading After the Internet
On Wednesday February 6th at 6pm, Lewis and Amy Kazymerchyk will lead an edition of ‘No Reading After the Internet,’ a salon series where cultural texts are read aloud by participants as a method of reforming publics and experimenting with the act of reading, as its own media form, in the contemporary moment. Participation in No Reading After the Internet is free and open to everyone, regardless of their familiarity with a text or its author. Texts will be handed out at the salon. No pre-reading or research is required. Please RSVP to
