Jameel Library has launched a “Readings Series” which invites visitors, friends and collaborators of the Jameel Library to read and respond to texts from their collection.

In this featured video Michael Rakowitz, an artist living and working in Chicago, reads an excerpt from Like a Woman: Essays, Readings, Poems by Quinn Latimer, published by Sternberg press, 2017.

‘Composed in the space between the page and live performance, Latimer’s recent essays and poems collected here examine issues of genealogy and influence, the poverty and privilege of place, architecture’s relationship to language, and feminist economies of writing, reading, and art making. Shifting between written language and live address, between the needs of the internal and the external voice, Like a Woman retrieves the refrain, the litany, and the chorus, exploring their serial ecstasies and political possibilities.’
