Between the Lines – with hugo x tibiriçá & Erika Sprey22 Jun 2022 20:00 / Leescafé@Nest
‘Between the lines’ is a reading café where we read and collectively discuss books, essays, poetry and articles. The text selection is made by curators or exhibiting artist(s). The group consists of max. 10 people and is led by changing discussion leaders.
For this edition on June 22nd, participating artist hugo x tibiriçá selects the book “The Devil and the Land of the Holy Cross: Witchcraft, Slavery and Popular Religion in Colonial Brazil” (by Laura de Mello e Souza), and elaborates on their relation to their practice. This book dives into the role of witchcraft, magic and healing, in Brazil, and how this country was formed and built from traditions from Europe, Africa and Indigenous America during three centuries of the colonial period.
The reading café will be moderated by co-curator Erika Sprey (curator of Wxtch Craft program 2020-2022), where the conversation will depart from a selected passage by hugo from the book, while exploring further the broad understanding of the witch/witchcraft in the past and present, the resurfacing/reclaiming as well as the limits of the term.
Date: Wednesday 22nd of June
Time: 8 – 9.30 pm
Ticket: €5,- (excl. book) places are limited, reservation is required.
Prior to the reading café, the selected chapter will be shared.
