Penetrate: Translate Reading Group: Ban en Banlieue by Bhanu Kapil

Mon 25 November 2019

Penetrate Translate

Join us to read around female body politics in translation.

Ban en Banlieue by Bhanu Kapil is a failure of a novel and a series of performance notes which trace an outline around the remains of a woman lying down.

Penetrate: Translate is a fortnightly reading group which reflects the violent slippage(s) that occurs between a text’s subject, its author, its reader(s), language(s) and form itself. The group is led by Catalina Barroso-Luque, a Mexican artist based in Glasgow. Books may be available at discount through MAP. Please contact for further information.
