adO/Aptive reading group

The adO/Aptive reading group creates a space to foster critical thinking, potentializing action, communicating and discussing Otherness. Every once in a while we meet to read together, discuss recent topics and interests and sometimes have artists, curators, theorists, philosophers etc. as guests. Please feel free to join our next meeting.
