For Artists at Work, Emily Floyd will launch her new print edition Female Orgasm: a codex of sorts, after Ursula K Le Guin, a typographic response to Le Guin’s invented Kesh language and the term BANHE, meaning “acceptance, inclusion, insight, understanding; female orgasm. To include; to comprehend; to have orgasm (female).” The project belongs to a group of works by Floyd that retrieve Le Guin’s language from an indefinitely deferred future, activating its revolutionary desire in the present. This edition is a collaboration with Experimental Jetset and is produced by Negative Press, with a text supplement by Anneke Jaspers.
Esther Hovers will speak about her photographic practice, as well as her work in progress entitled The Traveling Salesman. She will share her process for this project, which she has developed during her residency at ISCP.
