a pretty pathetic

On the 20th of June 2019 at 3:30pm (UTC+01:00) during my talk with/in languages – a pretty pathetic @ the Language INTER Networks conference in Lancaster, I danced to Lou Sarabadzic‘s reading of an extract of Hito Steyerl’s International Disco Latin.
The text of my talk with/in languages – a pretty pathetic is now available in ZeTMaG numéro 4.2 Langu(ag)e(s)-(E)Space(s).

Daniel Temkin – Reading as Writing, Coding as Public Performance

esotericheader… the code poem* by Abrahams brought with it the nullified performativity of the code itself. It was filled with references to the body and to exchanges with other human beings and the machine, emphasizing the gestures that fail to completely traverse those divides. … 

… Reading Club builds on Abraham’s career in testing the power and limitation of online interaction and collaboration, but Apparatus_is {Other-s} in particular draws from the experience as living between languages. …

In Reading as Writing, Coding as Public Performance, Daniel Temkin / esoteric.codes wrote about the latest ReadingClub performance, part of The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale in the @ scripting the other pavilion curated by noemata. Thanks Daniel for making the links to other parts of my work apparent.
