Caveat Reading Room: Rising Warmth

During this Reading Room, we'll come together around the research of Clémentine Vaultier on heat and fire as a transformative/performative culture-producing process.


Location (to be confirmed): Rue Paul Devauxstraat 3, 1000 Brussels

Vaultier compiles a research document that combines (art) historic and anthropological facts and fictions, imagery that was found online, the artist's own sketches, and life experiments connecting interests and methods such as food preparation, ceramics, and material research in relation to contemporary dynamics and discourse around artisanal production and alternative community building. It reflects on the intertwinement between the chemical, technical and the cultural: indeed, warmth was looked at as a physical phenomenon as well as a social feeling. The editorial principle follows a graph showing a rising temperature.
