This slow reading group will look at an excerpt of Lisa Baraitser's text; Maternal Encounters' to consider the body both in reading and in motherhood.

Maternal Interruptions

About Maternal Interruptions

The workshop draws on shared experiences of embodied approaches in creative practice. Both Jen Clarke and Sunshine Wong have recently become mothers and are re-negotiating new desires and demands in their work, lives, and relationships. Focusing on Lisa Baraitser's text for this embodied reading workshop, the artists hope to reflect upon maternal subjectivity and how it plays out in context / it is shaped by context. What does "becoming a mother" mean in terms of one's relation with the child as well as with the world that now reconfigures her as "mother"?

This workshop will introduce, in a really simple way, elements from body practices (dance, yoga) to make space for our living and reading bodies.

No prior preparation or knowledge of the text is necessary, because it will be read out loud together.

There will be a small area for babies and toddlers to safely play or rest, so we welcome parents to bring their children along. (We also advise that you bring something to eat for yourselves, though there will be light refreshment provided.)

Some other questions that frame this workshop include: how might embodied reading allow our (academic / artistic) practices of thinking, reading and working to become more sustainable, still critical practices? What happens if we think of and engage with a ‘text’ as a body? How might ways of moving relate to or parallel ways of reading? How is it possible to have one's will bent constantly, and still exert it when necessary?
