Rehearsing Hospitalities Companion 2 is the second in a series of readers published by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Archive Books, which accompany Frame’s five-year public programme Rehearsing Hospitalities

The 2020 edition looks into questions of hospitality and access. It is a site for hosting and gathering, for coming together through and in our differences in disconnected times. Featuring 16 contributions, the publication will be released on Tuesday, September 22 in open access-format with hard-copies distributed by Archive Books.

“Now more than ever we need to be consciously reconsidering diverse forms of hospitalities and ways of being together,” say the editors Yvonne Billimore and Jussi Koitela. “With this publication we wanted to look beyond normative and institutionalised understandings of access. How can arts organisations and institutions treat access not as general or universal policy, but instead understand access needs as coming from plural and decentralised ways of knowing and experiencing the world?”
 

Rehearsing Hospitalities Companion 2 comprises contributions from artists, curators and thinkers Camille Auer, Yvonne Billimore, Annet Dekker, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Aimi Hamraie, Hanna Helander, Jussi Koitela, Ali Akbar Mehta, Astrida Neimanis, Marietta Radomska, Marianne Savallampi, Laura Soisalon-Soininen, Minna Tarkka, and Touko Vaahtera.

Series of online readings in September and October

Expanding on the notion of a publication as a site for gathering, the publication launch will take the form of a series of four online reading events with various publication contributors. These events open up a selection of texts and place different writers in dialogue with each other. 

The events will be broadcast live on YouTube. We welcome audiences to register in advance to receive the link by email. If you're not able to attend but would like to be updated when the recording is available, please register to ensure you receive this. Alternatively you can find the YouTube link published on the Frame website on the day of the event here.

Each session welcomes questions and responses from audiences towards the end. Comments and questions can be posted into the comments section on YouTube. All events will be live captioned by artist Iona Roisin and recorded.
