Some remnants:
In an effort to add some fragments from previous
meetings. We are adding short descriptions that
were sent out as emails. Before March 2001, the meetings
were shared mainly through a mailing list we maintained.
Eventhough the remnants of correspondences
from 1999-2001 are fragmentary and incomplete,
they give an idea of the kinds of meetings which
were taking place and some of the different questions
and modes involved.

This Monday at 16 Beaver, we will be continuing the conversation we started with Michael Rakowitz and have enjoyed over the course of two weeks. If you have not had a chance to make it, please feel free to join this week as we discuss some of the points raised in this “Treatise” along with the general questions raised in the 3 shows we included last week. The image/concept of the Nomad has been raised, used, abused, misused in a lot of contemporary thought, taking this text as a starting point, we will examine the issue further.

This is the first 20 pages of the reading, we will be forwarding part two in the next e-mail. The Deleuze and Guattari essay can also be found sold on its own at St. Marks Bookshop for about 8 dollars, or as a part of .. a thousand plateaus for about 18.

For Mondays we often like to distribute work, notes, readings to accompany presentations. In these cases we use this messenger as a simple and cost efficient way of distributing the materials. The download is short (it is a small program) and quite simple to use. It allows you to read digital faxes (and of course to print them). When you follow the link below, please make sure to download the correct viewer. There is one for Windows and one for Mac. The one for Mac will take a bit longer to download. Here is the link,
