Sad Tuesday

Lothringer Studio,¬†Lothringer Str. 13, 81667 M√ľnchen

As some of you know, I have been speaking about setting up a reading group for some time. This was supposed to take place on Mondays and the idea was you would read but not socialise, ie. not drink. It is why I started writing “Sad Mondays” for Porcile, which essentially was such a one-person book club. Well, I am trying again this time on Tuesday, and I am going to call it “Sad Tuesday” – hah! – because I am so inventive. 

We will be reading texts loosely relating to Paul Valentin’s exhibition. The first are as follows:

1. Heidegger’s “Origin of the Work of Art” (we need to split this up into 2 sessions I think)

2. Meyer Schapiro “The Still Life as a Personal Object – a Note on Heidegger and Van Gogh.

3. Jacques Derrida “Restitutions of the Truth in Pointing”

The first session will take place on Tuesday, the 2nd of May at 6 pm, at the Lothringer Studio upstairs. I suspect it will last an hour or so. Hope to see some of you there! If you would like a copy of the text, please email me directly at
