The concept of ‘Notes’ is inspired by the 19th century practice of ‘marginalia’, which cultivated a gesture of ‘personalizing’ a book before offering it to a friend or a lover by writing notes in the margin. Inspired by this practice Ivana Müller invited a host of sharp readers to return to this tradition: Maxime Arnauld, Róise Goan, Livia Andrea Piazza, Laurence Rassel, Christel Stalpaert and Michiel Vandevelde. Together and alternately they read and comment on ‘Spartakus: The Symbology of Revolt’ (Furio Jesi). The hybride manuscript arising from this extensive meeting of minds will be the starting point for a collective discussion and exposition during The May Events.
The manuscript will be displayed in an exposition, both in Brussels (INSAS) and in Ghent (Vooruit Café). On two occasions the group of readers will engage the audience during a group discussion
