STRUKTURA: Room for Collective Encounters (R.C.E.)

at Akademirommet
09.11.19 – 17.11.19

Room for Collective Encounters is a nine day gathering of events, a reading camp of sorts exploring different methods of how to engage with text through the act of reading. We will explore reading collectively via THE READERS, live readings and performative ones (yes, there is a difference, you’ll see), not to mention a provisional library and a reading room. R.C.E. will reside in Akademirommet, on the backside of Kunstnernes Hus.

THE READERS is a group initiated by Stacey de Voe that seeks to challenge dominant modes of reading, by collective reading aloud, focusing on texts as tactics for working across differences, to connect with others and our histories.


The full daily program of all activities is available here:


R.C.E. Library is open from Tuesday to Sunday 11:00-17:00 (19:00 on Thursday) and will house printed work from thinkers, activists, anthropologistspoets, and authors that work with notions of time, politics, speculative histories and or chronologies that operate outside of linear structures and systems. The Library will act as a living bibliography. All book titles, reading material and program of R.C.E. is available through the STRUKTURA website.

STRUKTURA is a cross-disciplinary initiative for research and practice within the framework of visual arts, media archeology, literature and philosophy.

STRUKTURA is an exploration of how visual media and information technologies contribute to the ordering and production of time, where both past and future exist in a constantly malleable present. This five-month programme sprawls across virtual online environments and multiple physical venues in Oslo. It consists of exhibitions, film screenings, group readings, public event series and a club night.

STRUKTURA is an independent project developed by Lesia Vasylchenko. Learn more about it here.
