ADA Rotterdam - Area for Debate and Art


On Sunday the 24th of March, ADA hosted the open reading This Book is a Classroom. The afternoon was based on the publication We would like to learn and are working on a book… edited by Lucie Kolb, Romy Rüegger, HIT Studio Berlin and Passenger Books.

The publication asks questions about the conditions, politics, performativities and intersubjectivities of knowledge production in the art world. The publication is a continuation of a series of lectures, lecture performances and seminars that Lucie Kolb and Romy Rüegger have been organizing in the framework of With With since 2009 in Zürich.

For the reading in ADA we invited a small group of interdisciplinary readers to respond to four chapters of the book that reflect on forms of education, knowledge exchange and self-organised structures that support it. The responses could take any form such as writing, visual, performance, etc. Through these contributions our aim was to ‘re-read’ the publication and discuss its content and associated thoughts.

Some of the responses can be read and viewed here
