In the frame of the cycle “Lesen am See” we invite diverse reading groups and collectives to share their practices, related to the dialogical nature of text itself as well the community of readers & listeners. This cycle happens in the very particular place of Strandbad Tegelsee: on the one hand remote, in the woods on the Tegel lake, and at once in the middle of the city of Berlin. The presentations will be followed by the discussion. Participation is free of charge, registration is not required.
Lesen am See is a part of the two-year collaborative project Artistic Ecologies: New Compasses, Tools and Alliances conceived in collaboration with WHW, Zagreb, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, and Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, Berlin.
Co-funded by European Union and Foundation Between Bridges
