reading on reading

in their collaborative exposition reading on reading: ecologies of readingemma cocker, cordula daus and lena séraphin focus on the multi-faceted issue of reading as aesthetic practice. they approach reading as a reflexive and processual activity, a becoming. through a rich presentation of various reading practices and experiments conducted in the frame of rp#3, the exposition invites the reader to reflect on different dimensions of the event of reading. cocker, daus and séraphin also raise critical questions concerning collaboration in artistic research. they ask whether and how it might be possible to shift the notion of what artistic research does away from the preoccupation with knowledge production and goal-oriented work. how could we more attentively consider the different ecologies of shared practice in artistic research?

the exposition reading on reading is a series of experimental reading practices developed collaboratively by emma cocker, cordula daus and lena séraphin whilst working together in the research pavilion #3, venice, 2019, for exploring what alternative modes of sense making are produced when reading is undertaken artistically, as an aesthetic activity.

the expositionshares practices and reflections generated in-and-through this collaborative enquiry. whilst operating as a document or archive of a specifically time-bound research activity, the intent is that the various reading-scores could also be activated by other readers.
