Join artist Christian Nyampeta on this two day study weekend to investigate theories of language and life practices.


Using ‘idiorrhythmy’—a concept of political theology drawn from early asceticism of the Egyptian deserts and highlighted in Roland Barthes’ seminal lecture series How To Live Together: Novelistic Simulations of Some Everyday Spaces (1978), at the Collège de France—this course looks towards ideas of knowing, learning and feeling, as ways to consider human responsibility not only to each other but also other aspects of mechanisms of reciprocity. 

Over the two days, participants will have the opportunity to engage with a range of materials, from practical personal projects including notebook making to discussing and reflecting on ideas presented through short lectures, readings and film screenings. Participants are invited to bring collected material to use for their own introduction, discussions and notebook making during the weekend.
