Slow Reading Club

Slow Reading Club | xSRC // Andersen, Henry Fritz, Bryana Slow Reading Club (SRC) is a semi-fictional reading group initiated by Bryana Fritz and Henry Andersen in late 2016. The group deals in constructed situations for collective reading. SRC looks at, probes, and interrupts “readership” as a way to stimulate the contact zones between reader and text, text and text, reader and reader. Slow Reading Club premiered at kunstenfestivaldesarts 2017, in Brussels as part of an evening titled “Before the Codes”. Since then they have presented work in a number of performance, art, and discursive contexts: How Do Buildings Care? (La Loge, Brussels), Bâtard Festival 2017 (Beursschouwburg, Brussels & Veem House for Performance, Amsterdam), Whose Organs Were Those of a Leopard (Louise Dany, Oslo), The Tyranny of Distance (ESBA TALM, Angers), Reframing the House of Dust (CalArts, California), and Horizon Sucker (as part of “Montez Radio”, MOMA PS1, New York). The group is currently in residence with the Art by Translation postgraduate program. They split their time between Brussels and its various elsewheres.
