Céline Condorelli and Aaron Schuster
Couple FORMAT 3
Date: Wednesday 13 July 2016
Venue: New Soft Room
FORMAT is a ‘live magazine’ looking at the shapes that discourse takes. The sixth issue takes place at the AA in Summer 2016, and runs from July 6 to July 15. Open to the public, and free of charge, FORMAT No.6 focuses on ‘Couple Format.’ Mathematically speaking, a couple is the smallest unit of collaboration and therefore the most potent (or poisonous). Can we think of a working life together, or apart, as possessing shape? Stories on Couple Formats bring inspiration, solace or simple guidance on how to be ourselves.
Céline Condorelli and Aaron Schuster will present the Couple Formats of German philosopher Hannah Arendt & American author Mary McCarthy and radical philosophers Gilles Deleuze & Felix Guattari”
