Live Stage: common practice [uk Bristol + online]

common practice: Texts by mez breeze :: June 3, 2010; 5:00 – 8:00 pm :: Reading Room, Arnolfini, Bristol, UK and online.

Italo Calvino said ‘the storyteller explored the possibilities implied in his own language by combining and changing the permutations of the figures and the actions, and of the objects on which these actions could be brought to bear‘. It is by following this principle that common practice will start.

The first session will open with mez breeze’s mezangelle poems, written in a blend of code and language, and we will be practising a simultaneous reading-writing reworking of these texts to experience their language-code operations during the event. Seisure, Seisure 1

common practice is a reading group that uses Wiki and Skype to perform a Calvino-style manipulation of texts. Through unpredictable cobbling together of texts, poetry, people, code, language, Wiki, chat, conversations etc. we will co-produce untagged and free style body/ies of knowledge.

The reading groups that make up common practice will take place in June and September. You are invited to read, write, tinker with and intervene in the literary and theoretical texts and poetry together with others through the simple-to-use online tools. You can join us in the Reading Room at Arnolfini or online and via Skype (contact: common practice).

common practice references the widespread and increasingly familiar activity of using online tools in everyday to communicate, contact, work, socialise, play, research, be entertained, etc. The practice embodies the curiosity to experience ways in which human and machine skills and abilities perform together.

More importantly, however, common practice also refers to the fact that it is done in common – together with others. Thus it is social space of knowledge materialised through co-labour, codeworking and language. Anxiety, concern and conflict might be part of the practice in the same way that curiosity, hospitality and kindness are hoped for. This is practice in flux, nomadic practice that exists in the common. Knowledge and experiences generated during the session will be captured by its users.

The Department of Reading — initiated by Sönke Hallmann — assembles and performs different modes of reading. In part online-based, but situated in specific spatial configurations, it pays particular attention to the adjacent space of reading, which cannot be told apart from the body of the text itself. In order to reflect on the place of the reader the Department of Reading turns within its practice towards the gesture, elements of repetition as well as the concept of the margin. It translates the experiences coming forth from its readings into the online space given with Wiki and Skype as well as the format of the book. Up to the programming of new technological modules the Department of Reading has realised around thirty readings so far, the Symposium for Readers and will soon publish Echo’s Book.

In approaching the space of reading as a threshold within the text, an empty place that resides in any act of reading and writing, the Department of Reading aims at furthering its practice as such. Here, the commonality inherent to reading and writing comes into sight as well. Currently the Department of Reading follows within three series different rhythms, temporalities and intensities of reading. In order to participate in a session of the Department of Reading, all you need is an account on Skype and a connection to the Internet (contact: soenkeh [at] gmail.com).
