December 2016

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
  • In collaboration with the Groupe d’information sur les ghettos (g.i.g.) and upon the invitation of Sonia Chiambretto and Yoann Thommerel, the EISPI team (International School of Inter-contemporary Poetry) will be coming to Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers to write, thrash out and bounce ideas about the “Questionnaire n°1”. Literary wrestling involves boxing with words, using striking exclamation marks and smashing syntax. Competing in improvisation matches written on computer, the sharp-minded, sharply costumed wrestlers wield the mask and the keyboard with humour and poetry. This evening is programmed at Les Laboratoires Friday 9th December 2016, at 8 p.m.

  • Pour ce troisième atelier de cuisine participative, l’ethnobotaniste Véronique Desanlis nous fera découvrir la cosmopolite famille des Rosaceae. Les espèces telles que la prunelle, l’aubépine ou encore l’églantier sont des baies sauvages qui se dégustent sous plusieurs formes sucrées comme salées, et aident, grâce à leur apport en vitamine C, à combattre le froid hivernal.
    Cet atelier, programmé samedi 10 décembre 2016, de 14h à 17h, est ouvert à tous sur inscription à ou au 01 53 56 15 90.
    Il est limité à 15 participants.

  • Conviviality cards for a living library

    Bibliothèque des Laboratoires

    The Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers library is a living archive of the centre’s operational history and the projects it has supported throughout the years. It also constitutes a potentially rich and varied resource for artists, researchers and visitors to the space, both in terms of the materials it provides and the common space of study and exchange it promises. In the spirit of contanimation that is an important element of Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson residency project, common infra/ctions, they would like to propose a means for further activating this space and fostering relations of conviviality among its users. Suggesting another mode of lending through a different card system, they proposes conviviality cards to bring together a community of readers in a spirit of co-research and co-production of knowledge (and non-knowledge), one which would foster a responsive sharing, not only of books but also of the experiences they inform.
