Words and Voices

Series: Symposium
Date: Friday 11 May 2018
Time: 16:00
Venue: AA Lecture Hall

The problem of writing: writers, as Proust says, invent a new language within language, a foreign language, as it were. They bring to light new grammatical or syntactic powers. They force language outside its customary furrows, they make it delirious [délirer]. (Gilles Deleuze)


If the act of writing by ceaselessly shattering common usage and perceptions of language brings to light ‘a new language’ and the yet ‘un-thought’, so does the practice of reading. We propose an afternoon of reading to trigger and stage encounters within and across a variety of voices in architecture, art, literature and philosophy. A series of readings and conversations will revive a practice where the voice becomes continuous with what it reads, and, at the same time, confronts it, producing a space of exchange and knowledge to be shared.

Shumon Basar | Writer | Editor | Curator
Smadar Dreyfus | Artist
Helene Frichot | Director of Critical Studies in Architecture | KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), Stockholm
Yve Lomax | Royal College of Art | Goldsmiths Gollege
