Radical Reading 19/2/2016


















Responding to Jupiter Woods’ new exploration, a series of public ‘peer mentoring’ events, Radical Reading presents an account of their curatorial practice and speculations, a staging of hidden processes, pending projects, messy intentions; a summary of retrieved sensorial and archival materials arranged and performed in Jupiter Woods for an evening, on Friday 19 February 2016.
Part of the presentation will be the publication of a series of artist eBooks by Theodoros Giannakis, Georges Jacotey, Yannis Papadopoulos, Nayia Savva, Eftychios Savvidis, Stefania Strouza and Valinia Svoronou.
