In this reading group, led by critic and curator Isobel Harbison, we will read extracts from “The Magic Christian” by Terry Southern and “Why Have I Not Written Any of My Books” by Marcel Bènabou, discussing comic self-effacement as a literary conceit and artistic methodology. We will use the subject as a platform to discuss specific works of art by Mick Peter in “Pyramid Selling” and others.
Isobel Harbison is a London based, writer, critic and curator.
Texts will be sent to all ticket holders in advance of the evening
