BLUE RING READING GROUP

Mon 10.04 - 19:30 // OPEN SEMINAR // ACUD STUDIO
BLUE RING READING GROUP

This reading group will focus on the issue of self-optimization (also read as: coping with society’s demands) in its practical and theoretical dimensions. Readings are based on past and current self-help bestsellers. Discussions address the self’s capacities to reflect critically upon the power–knowledge relations and possibilities to engage in practices of critical self-transformation.
 
Our readings will raise questions about the Eurocentric conceptualizations of technological solutionism, the myth of (personal) development, western ideas of romantic relationships and the humans understanding of matter.
 
We will provide a short reading for each month. You can join the group at anytime. Moderated discussions will take place on monthly meetings at ACUD Macht Neu and in between via email.
