Temperatures II: Quinn Latimer – They’re only Walls, Hush

Temperatures – an online series by Bonner Kunstverein, Kunstverein München and Kunstverein Nürnberg

Temperatures is a cooperative year-long program of events including talks, readings, concerts, and performances expanding the digital space within the existing infrastructures of the three institutions.

The second event, They’re only Walls, Hush, on Wednesday, 31 March at 7 pm, is a reading with US-American writer Quinn Latimer whose work often explores feminist economies of writing, reading, and moving-image production. Her reading centers around two texts that both use repetition and the refrain as modes to consider the voice as well as gender and class as a complicit actor in the making and performing of language.

Latimer is the current participant of the Writers Residency, a cooperation between Kunstverein München and the Department of Arts and Culture of the City of Munich. Her books include Like a Woman: Essays, Readings, Poems (2017), Sarah Lucas: Describe This Distance (2013), and Rumored Animals (2012). Her writings regularly appear in Artforum, frieze, The Paris Review, and The White Review, and she has recently contributed catalogue texts for numerous artists. She is a lecturer at Art Institute in Basel, where, with Chus Martínez, she organises a biannual symposia series on questions of gender, language, social justice, and artistic practice. Latimer was editor-in-chief of publications for documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel.

The talk will be held in English, it is accessible for free and without registration via the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87503095722
