Hangover Reading Club

Hangover Reading Club

Trafó Gallery's new lazy Saturday morning reading group explores fresh theoretical approaches and critical perspectives that provide insight into larger-than-human worlds and belief systems that flow beyond solidified patterns of thinking and doing. The textual gatherings, led by invited curators, artists or theoreticians, often in conjunction with the exhibitions and events at Trafó Gallery, will include discussions on posthuman theories, ecofeminism, queer ecologies, hydrofeminism, speculative realism, object-oriented ontology among others.

The texts of Hangover Reading Club will be in English and Hungarian, while the discussions will be in Hungarian. We will send the texts of each session beforehand via email for those who are interested (texts + more info >> gallery@trafo.hu). Thinking of heavy sleepers, nighthawks and of those who prefer to do the groceries early in the morning, the sessions begin at 11:30 am. Hangover Reading Club is free, all are welcome!
