BIRDS FUCK IN THE AIR
EVERY SECOND THURSDAY FROM 24 OCTOBER 2019 TO 11 JUNE 2020
17:00 - 20:00
The group is moderated by Eva Garrido.
One evening last year we read out loud some passages from Reinaldo Arenas’ autobiography, Before Night Falls, in which the author talks about his sexual awakening in the countryside. At that moment not only the members of the reading group, but also the students and the users of the library stopped what they were doing to listen to the story with the kind of undivided attention we had never seen before.
This year we want to explore the world of erotic literature and experiment the fascination aroused by reading it. We will follow the same method as always: finding strange texts, expanding the normative gaze on this genre, stretching its limits and placing desire at the centre in order to fly freely.
The only requisite for taking part is to have read the texts before each session and to take part with a participative spirit.
