Berlin/Paris/Istanbul IDSVA Reading List: June


In a short while, my ‘break’ from IDSVA will be over and then I will be preparing for my next intensive residency in Berlin, Paris and Istanbul. Preparation means lots of reading of course and there will be few new books to purchase since we will be doing a second, deeper reading of some texts.

Check out our summer visiting faculty!!!! What an amazing group!!! Here is a link to their bios for more info on this prestigious group.

This summer students will work with internationally renowned artists, philosophers and scholars, such as Simonetta Moro and Tom Huhn in Rome, Azra Aksamija at Spannocchia Castle, Howard Caygill and Vadim Zakharov in Berlin, Jacqueline Rose and George Smith in Paris, and Sylvère Lotringer in Istanbul.
