American Realness

Your guide from the inside

READING started as a zine for American Realness 2013. In 2014 READING transitioned – from print to digital – and has lived online as a digital journal since.

READING 2017 is curated by Ali Rosa-Salas, and offers commissioned essays from Katherine Brewer Ball, Maya Harakawa, Danielle Jackson, Ikechukwu Casmir Onyewuenyi, and Kieran Swann. The pieces situate the festival performance program within an interdisciplinary dialogue and consider the political, conceptual, and aesthetic strategies brought to bare in the work of the festival artists.
