Latourism: the act of reading #1 | March 25 2018 | first reminder

Dear Latourists,

After a little break we will be meeting again in 2018!

This time a bit differently. Instead of the conventional discussion of essays, books, films, and works of art, we will be exploring the act of experiencing itself.

When is the last time you watched a film or read a book for an extensive period of time, in silence, without any distractions?

On March 25 we will collectively read one book, in silence, from the early afternoon until midnight, with scheduled breaks with food, conversation, and some surprises.

We will start March 25 on 13.00 and end at 22.00. We will read at the [location deleted], Rotterdam.

We will prepare a basic meal (soup) for all participants, but it would be very nice if you could bring something which will add to that.

We kindly ask you to apply via the following Google docs document: [link deleted]

After the application you will automatically receive a link to the book we will collectively read. Please don’t starting reading beforehand. Also, be aware that the goal of the session is not to finish the book, so don’t be afraid of its size.

Please bear in mind that there will be a limited number of spaces available.

We hope to see you soon.
