Reading sessions based on YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP, a project by artists Dorota Gawęda und Egle Kulbokaitė. Initiated by and jointly organized with Konstanze Schütze (University of Cologne). In an informal atmosphere, academic texts on queer theory, science fiction and digital imaginaries are read aloud together and discussed. Previous knowledge of the text is not required. The readings are accompanied by relaxing yoga sessions.

Tabita Rezaire

Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a mean to unfold the soul. Her cross-dimensional practices envision network sciences – organic, electronic and spiritual – as healing technologies to serve the shift towards heart consciousness.

Navigating digital, corporeal and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and the protocols of energetic misalignments that affect the songs of our body-mind-spirits. Inspired by quantum and cosmic mechanics, Tabita’s work is rooted in time-spaces where technology and spirituality intersect as fertile ground to nourish visions of connection and emancipation.

Through screen interfaces and collective offerings, her digital healing and energy streams remind us to see, feel, think, intuit, download, know and trust beyond western authority but towards the soul.

Tabita is based in Cayenne, French Guyana. She has a Bachelor in Economics (Fr) and a Master of Research in Artist Moving Image from Central Saint Martins (Uk). Tabita is a founding member of the artist group NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and the mother of the energy house SENEB.
