Takeover

IV. Words Takeover

Words Takeover explores the act of reading as a summoning. The writer enters your mind, you let them in, and their thoughts hover alongside yours. And when you read them out loud, you become a vessel for their thoughts to enter the world.

Featuring Ephraim Asili, Fluid Frontiers (2017); Dora García, The Joycean Society (2013); Jonna Kina, Secret Words and Related Stories (2013-2016); Natsuka Kusano, Domains (2019).

Words Takeover is the fourth chapter of the online program Takeover curated by Julian Ross for e-flux Video & Film, and unfolding in six chapters between September 22 and December 15, 2022, with the films and videos of each chapter streaming for two weeks.
