To look at a book slowly and carefully turns the object to be read into an object of study, and those who look into a study group. It was a year ago that The Book to Come reading group began our meetings. During the time we have been together, we’ve been reading and carefully looking at five books by Marcel Broodthaers which were chosen by Filiep Tacq. We invited different people to help us by directing each session: Mónica Carballas, Discoteca Flaming Star, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, Menchu Gutiérrez, Karl Larsson, and Olivier Foulon. This session follows on from the first session moderated by Bulegoa z/b on 21 April. We will continue to work with minutes written by members of the group, and with the Jacques Derrida’s essay The Book to Come.
