Reading Group: Sound, light and a robot

As part of our informal education program, we are delighted to announce our reading groups. The series of ten meetings will be moderated by curator Nina Šardi and literary critic Tonja Jelen. We will meet once or twice a month until the end of 2024 at MMC KIBLA or at the artKIT exhibition space. The Reading Group is conceived as an open space for meeting, dialogue, discussion, and collaborative learning about ecological, socio-political and activist topics, which will be drawn from KIBLA's intermedia productions and visual exhibition program. The aim of the shared reading of selected texts and collective reflection is to learn about a wide range of artworks and to exchange knowledge on current theories of modernity, the development of technology and social, political and economic concepts that dictate global shifts, thus conditioning our everyday lives.

The Reading Group is aimed at the general audience; no professional background is expected, except a sense of curiosity and a desire for collaborative learning and sharing knowledge. However, it is strongly recommended that you read the selected texts in advance. To register your participation and to receive specific texts, which will be sent to you in PDF-format, please send an e-mail to or Registration is for information only and is not binding.

You are cordially invited!

2. Sound, light and a robot
Thursday, 25 April 2024, 5 p.m.

The second meeting of the reading club will focus on sound, light and robotics and discuss these topics in relation to the installation Curious Tautophone – Tensor Field Ontology. How these topics frame intermedia art and how intermedia art affects the individual will be discussed based on the article Space and Light in 20th Century Installation Art by Uršula Berlot. The article is available free of charge (in Slovenian only) as a pdf HERE.

The world that passes through us is full of sounds and the entire spectrum of light in different colors. How humans perceive all this and where we can encounter robots, even outside of art, are the topics that offer a wide range of considerations.

The Reading Group is part of the informal education program supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and the Municipality of Maribor.
