Carrie: Reading Group
A reading group aiming to develop our common references, friendship and solidarity.
Carrie invites you to a collective reading and discussion of “Ecology of strangers”, a chapter from the 2019 book “How to do nothing, resisting the attention economy” by Jenny Odell.
In this chapter, Odell explores the possibility of using natural diversity as a model for cultivating a resilient and diverse culture. We want to draw on this text to think about the ways we can work outside of the liberal individual mindset, especially as a means for working together.
Carrie is a Gemini, a split screen, an imposter, an interdisciplinary collective, always morphing and taking on new faces as an artistic strategy. Working with variant modes of being together in the arts, Carrie aims to open up a space for public conversation, exchange and reflection. Their projects include reading groups, screenings, open lectures, working groups and performances.In the frame of the reading groups, a variety of texts will be read. Each session aims to make space for contemporary questions through reading together. The reading groups are an occasion to meet in order to develop and deepen our common references, language and vocabulary, as well as friendships and solidarity. This time, the reading group takes place in the frame of Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival.
Carrie consists of Marie Ursin, Alexandra Tveit, Nikhil Vettukattil and Runa Borch Skolseg. Carrie are currently associated artists at Black Box teater (2020–2021).
Duration: 120 minutes.
Free access with registration (limited to 10 participants).
