Remote Readings is a series of live radio broadcasts hosted by Burcu Emeç and Christopher Willes. The project initiated out of their research into expanded concepts of citation in performance making as both ethical and embodied practice. Developed as part of Studio 303’s 2021 curators-in-residence program, the two met regularly throughout the pandemic, and through the simple pleasure of reading to each other a lasting question emerged: how is my art practice responsible to other people?
In the art world, practices of individual artists and collectives alike are perpetually communicated through the logic of property and ownership. Yet current legal frameworks of these concepts often work against the development of responsible practices for working together. And individual reputation and authorial attribution remain the primary means by which artworks are circulated, and how some become more visible over others. With this in mind, Burcu and Christopher have been asking: can we trouble the idea of ownership, and replace it with belonging? What are alternate economic models for artistic production that center alliance and reciprocity? What new concepts of relation emerge when working methodologies are focused on the commons?
Remote Readings will explore these questions over three episodes transmitted in the park. Hosted by Burcu and Christopher, and including contributions from invited artists, each event will be experienced sonically (and at a physical distance) through portable radios. We hope you will join us.
Developed in partnership with Public Recordings.
Please note, this event consists of conversations and readings between English-speaking artists, transmitted through radio waves. As such, French translation/captioning is unavailable.
