The reading, hosted by the cybernetics and “collective pedagogies” group Second Foundation, is inspired by Roy Ascott‘s ‘Groundcourse‘. The so-called radical pedagogy was inspired by cybernetics and developed by Ascott “to integrate art, science, and behavioural studies” through various practices and experiments.
The programme will consist of a reading group “guided by chance operations” and will feature texts inspired by and echoing the practices of ‘Groundcourse’, as the evening’s participants are encouraged to “engage in mind-mapping while reading, creating a wall of observations and insights to be re-configured throughout the evening”.
See the Second Foundation website for event details. **
