Reading Group Session 9
Cassandra Press: Reader on Performativity

The reading group is a gathering and an open format to read together and to be introduced to thinking and writing on themes of intersectionality, queerness, gender and race. It provides a forum for discussions and personal reflections. The current sessions will be focusing on the compiled readers by Cassandra Press which are on display in their exhibition in Gallery V. The first session will look at their Reader on Performativity and will be facilitated by Nora-Swantje Almes, live programme curator.

Inspired by the practice of the Feminist Durational Reading Group London, we will read out loud – paragraph by paragraph – to make sense of the texts and its themes together. We are open to all. No previous reading or knowledge is required – the readings will be in English.

For access requests or if you have questions on accessibility, please e-mail or make yourself known to our staff.

Bergen Kunsthall is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We follow a no-tolerance approach to racism, as well as ageism, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, ableism, or prejudice based on ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, gender presentation, language ability, asylum status or religious affiliation.
