There are many books i want to read. But i still struggle to getting there and i want to share this reading.
I propose you to do it with me.

An arpentage is a collective reading technique, where a group of people gathers, everyone reads one part of the book individually and then discuss it all together. It is a way to read a whole book by a multitude of points of view. It is a performative act of collective knowledge production.

This book presents a large collection of anecdotes and jokes from different periods of the 20th century. Anecdotes and jokes were a hidden form of discursive communication in the Soviet era, lampooning official practices and acting as a confidential form of self-affirmation. They were not necessarily anti-Soviet, by their very nature both criticising existing reality and acting as a form of acquiescence. Above all they provide invaluable insights into everyday life, and the attitudes and concerns of ordinary people. The book also includes anecdotes and jokes from the post-Soviet period, when ordinary people in Russia continued to have to cope with rather grim reality, and the compiler provides extensive introductory and explanatory matter to set the material in context.

No need to know anything, if you want to come by and read with some strangers, you’re welcome : )

Each participants reads apart around 30 pages and then everyone gathers to tell each other their part, ask questions and discuss the book.

This is part of my artist practice towards building a pirated common library: if they want, each participant will receive a copy of the book augmented by everyone’s notes to thank them for the participation.

πŸ’₯ Please book one of the 9 spots available by writing to enrico@slanted.cc πŸ’Œ

You’ll be welcomed with tea and coffee during the session.

🌳 the reading will be in open air 🌳
