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.

Next meeting: Saturday, 26.11.22
