Second Foundation reading group @ White Building, Aug 26

, 24 August 2015

Second Foundation is hosting its inaugural reading group at London’s White Building on the evening of August 26.

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. **
