Open Letter: “A and Z” by Janice McNab

“… she clicked and rose from her desk. Muscles frozen by screen time unfurled and concentration fell off her like cold river water. She broke surface into the evening sun at the back window. The street below was quiet. The only movement was on the horizon, where towers of cumulus built along the coast and […]

🧶Next week we celebrate the launch of “Rollable Ramblings”, Koen Taselaar’s new book!❣️

🕰The launch will take place on Wednesday 15 December from 15:00-17:00.

👀A very special commission by Page Not Found will be unveiled during the event. It’s a limited edition, which you can pre-order only that day!

🪢”Koen Taselaar. Rollable Ramblings” is the first comprehensive publication on the artist’s textile work. The majority of Rollable Ramblings comprises reproductions of his tapestries, and zoom-ins on them. This visual component is complemented with essays shedding light on the works, and on the history of textile art in general, written by art critic Katalin Herzog. 

🧶The book was made in collaboration with Textiellab, the professional workshop of the TextielMuseum.

🐠In September 2020, Taselaar presented “Opinionated Aquarium”, his solo show at Page Not Found, where some of the tapestries reproduced in the book were first revealed to the public.

❤️‍🩹This Saturday we host an online reparative reading session💔

🩹 Page Not Found and the Reading Room are happy to invite you to this two-part online reading session around ‘repair’, led by Cristina Cochior, amy pickles and Joana Chicau of the Rotterdam-based initiative Varia. 

⏰ The online session takes place in two parts: the first part from 14:30-16:30 and the second part from 17:00-19:00. Participants can choose to attend one or both parts of the session.

👀 While a small introduction will be held over Zoom, the session itself does not take place through video-call but through an interactive digital Etherpad document. 

📑Texts for this session will be provided in the moment and there is no need for reading in advance.

❣️Please confirm your attendance for one or both parts of the session by sending an email to register@page-not-found.nl.

💾 In this Reading Room session we will consider the modes in which our bodies interact with, are perceived by and operate through, with and against everyday communication technologies. This collective work will be carried out on an Etherpad, an open-source, web-based collaborative editor, allowing authors to simultaneously edit a text document and see all of the participants’ edits in real-time. What intimate relations are bound within our screens and machines? What does our body learn while flowing in these zones?

📑 As a group we will look into practices of “annotating” text. We will make digital annotations as we read, digesting the words while we highlight, underline, write in the margin, look up meanings and take notes, making the text more accessible to the next person who encounters it. 

🤕The thoughts central to this reparative reading session are formed by scholar Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. In the essay, “Paranoid Reading and Reparative Reading; or, You’re So Paranoid, You Probably Think This Introduction is About You”, Sedgwick tells us that rearranging what we read can be a form of sustenance.
