The Unforgettables Reading/Working group is a series of open to the public monthly meetings at the A.I.R. space running since late 2016. This group, formed by readers/workers from several disciplines and walks of life, brings to the front a combination of texts, artworks, and films. Every month the group looks at historic feminist and queer manifestos, science fiction, new feminist fiction writings, and theory pieces that help to imagine a future where no-one is forgotten. Furthermore, the meetings are led by different members of the group, empowering the attendants to learn and publicly share their thoughts with others.
Under the initiative of artist Ofri Cnaani and A.I.R. Executive Director Roxana Fabius, this group was the result of the realization that we live in challenging times. On one hand it seems like the liberalization of gender is becoming pervasive, and on the other, direct and indirect violence is becoming more visible and socially approved when that “face” of acceptance is becoming less necessary.
The group as an opportunity to face this violence through community and information, through the creation of a future that embraces its origins, accepts the mistakes of the past, and becomes more inclusive. We invite everyone to study, converse, and work together.
Studying side by side, the group works on A.I.R.’s non official horizontal and updated feminist library. An unusual unforgettable one.
