The books included in the series Choreography as Conditioning are rooted in a cycle of work sessions entitled CASC at KASK, in which students work together with invited guests. They explore the notions of choreography, understood as ways of organizing subjects in their surroundings, and conditioning in both art-making and society-making. Where, how, and by whom are things organized and what kind of landscapes of experience are made (im)possible by the practices we enact and encounter?
Practicing Futures through Voicing, the second book in this series, connects with the first book’s concern with how practices destabilize and (re)constitute the concept of conditioning. It does so by questioning how to process life in a way that allows us to create volume, take space, and find our (tone of) voice—first in our immediate surroundings and, through this, in the world as it struggles and moves toward ongoing futures.
rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
The bookshop is open from Friday to Sunday from 12:00 to 18:00, by appointment and during our events.
