Connecting Bookworms to Our Exhibitions

We're collaborating with Guide to Kulchur to bring you the Adventure Book Club, a quarterly meet-up for bookworms that connects to SPACES exhibitions through a book and Cleveland-based adventure.

The Making of the Indebted Man, by Maurizio Lazzarato
Do We Notice Our Wages on a Daily Basis?
Book club adventurers are challenged to live without one-third of their monthly income in June, while working the same hours. Participants are encouraged to document their experience, at minimum once a week for four weeks, with the method(s) of their choice. At the end of the challenge we'll gather together at a location TBA for a potluck discussion of the book, and to share our experiences with the self-imposed financial restriction. This book and adventure correspond with Kate Sopko's The Fixers project at SPACES.

Here's how the Adventure Book Club works:

  • Visit your friendly independent bookshop (5900 Detroit Avenue) to purchase the next book on the reading list.
  • View the related SPACES exhibition, The Fixers, once it opens on May 20th.
  • Join us on the corresponding adventure!

    Exhibition: Yaelle Amir (Portland, OR), Hidden Assembly
    Book: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair

    Exhibition: Geologic Cognition Society (Cleveland, OH), Underneath Is Before
    Book: Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky
    Adventure: We ate dinner at Empress Taytu, where the owners spoke with us about the prevalence of salt in Ethiopian history. Ryan Dewey, from Geologic Cognition Society, conducted an experimental salt tasting around the dinner table.
