Starting 26th January 2017, the Art & Theory Reading Group met once a month for four months, at Wollaton Street Studios, to discuss Jacques Derrida’s Given Time: 1. Counterfeit Money. Examining the implications for artistic practice of its ostensible theme of the gift, expressed in Derrida’s process of deconstruction and his “strict taste for refinement, paradox and aporia.”
Each of the four meetings was dedicated to reading one of the four chapters of Given Time, in preparation for which I wrote a series of posts summarising my own reading of the relevant chapter. I have shared links to these posts below.
