Abstract (English)

" The exhibition Reading Exercises juxtaposes recent works that, each in their own way, speak to a renewed relationship to reading, viewed as a space for productive experimentation and critical investigation. As the title suggests, reading is addressed and deployed in this exhibition specifically as an exercise–physical, mental, cognitive, pedagogical, epistemological, political, ethical, etc. Whether considered in the sense of training (requiring repetition and work, as in long-term effort), or associated with the social, cultural and political conditions of individual as well as collective practice, the expression “reading exercises” aims to convey the complexity of this activity that cannot be confined to the mere notion of a profound literary experience cut off from the outside world.
