Reading & Research Group II - Fluid Fundaments
6 november – 17 december, 19.30
Fluid Fundaments – Looking into today’s (and future) ways of working - we discuss Judith Butler and Isabell Lorey and others who understand precariousness as a given that defines us and propose to use this condition of mutual dependence as a starting point for new practices of work-life. We read about care (and violence) in Mark Fisher; we undo work and rethink community with James Chamberlain and do post-work imaginaries with Kathi Weeks. We unpack the container-notion ‘work’ and find categories and feelings for all the sorts of work and non-work we do, paid or not, conscious or not, and map them.
This RR is done in the context of Fluid Fundaments of work-life a research by Nienke Scholts into alternative practices of organizing performing arts, of which the 100 Days is one of the main collaborators and case study.

Reading & Research, shortly RR, is about reading and studying a specific topic together. Smaller groups of interested people gather to read and unfold texts into worlds of thoughts while helping and challenging each other, as everyone brings their own background, expertise, vision, and ‘readings.’ RR is also about slow thinking, zooming in, and developing discourse.
