... "Where are the tiny revolts?" A Program for the Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair
Our galleries might be closed, but many ideas, images, and perspectives can also live within the pages of a good book.

Where are the tiny revolts? is the first book in an annual series of readers titled A Series of Open Questions, published by the Wattis and Sternberg Press, and distributed by the MIT Press, Art Data, and Les presses du réel. Each reader includes newly commissioned texts and an edited selection of perspectives, images, and references related to the Wattis’s year-long research seasons. The title of each book comes in the form of a question.

Where are the tiny revolts? takes the work of Dodie Bellamy as its point of departure and explores contemporary forms of feminism and sexuality, the rebirth of the author, and ways in which vulnerability, perversion, vulgarity, and self-exposure can be forms of empowerment. There are essays, poems, photographs, stories, and much more.

For this virtual event, seven contributors have chosen to highlight a piece from the book (other than their own). In a series of short presentations, they read and/or introduce the piece and why they chose it.

Speakers include Nicole Archer, Dodie Bellamy, Kaucyila Brooke, Glen Helfand, Alex Kitnick, Marcela Pardo Ariza, and P. Staff.

The event concludes with a short Q&A with the audience.

The book is available for purchase via the Wattis bookshop or via MIT Press (in the US) and Sternberg Press (in the rest of the world). Please support your local bookstores!

This event is part of the Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair.
