Acts of Reading

About

Goodman Gallery Cape Town
25 May – 13 July 2019

Acts of Reading takes as it’s starting point the ways in which information is exchanged, communicated and understood. It aims to provide a space whereby traditional, linear modes of knowledge production are disrupted and questioned, alternative communication systems are explored or documented or new information networks are proposed. How we understand or read the world is intrinsically linked to how we receive and then interpret information. The means by which information is communicated and received are not neutral and there are multiple ways in which knowledge is produced and information exchanged and received.
