Close Readings
Marina Vishmidt: Between Not Everything and Not Nothing: Cuts Toward Infrastructural Critique

UKS is pleased to introduce Close Readings, our new no-preparation-needed monthly reading group.

This summer and autumn, Close Readings will be developing a vocabulary of infrastructural critique. Together we will work to understand a theoretical framework for the multiple processes, institutions, technologies and networks that form the arena in which we live.

Our first reading session will be on 26 June, and is dedicated to the memory of American writer, editor, critic and comrade Marina Vishmidt (1976–2024) through the reading of her text ‘Between Not Everything and Not Nothing: Cuts Toward Infrastructural Critique’.

You can read the article in advance or do feel very welcome to come unprepared. This is a short but difficult text that we will read together in person and try our best to understand. All levels of engagement and questions are welcome. We want to create a safe and open environment for reflection and learning, even when the reading material is challenging.

The text can be found here.

Everyone is welcome to join!



The event is spoken in English.
