The three-day seminar is organized as a writing workshop. Each day the group will take up a particular writing/representational problem, discuss it with the prompt of an exemplary reading, and do a writing exercise. Special attention will be paid to the relationship between form (articulation practice) and content (idea concept) in contexts where it is impossible to separate the work of aesthetic and political representation. The writing exercises address general problems using each individual’s specific intel- lectual/artistic interest so that at the end –hopefully– you will have done some writing or thinking or experimenting useful to your current work.

Avery F. Gordon is a Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Visiting Faculty Fellow at the Centre for Research Architecture, Department of Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Her work focuses on radical thought in action and over the last few years, she has been writing about captivity, war and other forms of dispossession and how to eliminate them.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
