Slow Spatial Reader: Chronicles of Radical Affection
This product is sold out
How to dissent from enforced temporalities: essays from artists, theorists and more
The essays in this volume chronicle projects and ideas that analyze the nuances of spatial experience: reaching into the cracks of the body, probing the fuzzy borders of atmospheres, extending out across both geographical and epistemological coordinates.
Like its predecessor, Slow Reader, this new publication is intended to inspire both a different velocity of engaging the world and critical shifts in consciousness that only slow thinking and practice can provoke.
The term ‘radical affection’ in the book’s title was coined to unite those diverse approaches in a call for tender acts of individual and collective imagination through which new forms of caring, connection, and resilience might emerge.
