This one-night-only reading encounter will occur within and beyond the labyrinthine folds and dog-eared corners of þan-þan's book-as-exhibition, presented as part of a series of Fall/Winter 2019 programs looking at relationships between fiction, voice and collectivity.
This event is presented with support from the Edinburgh College of Art. A Micro-Library of select publications from Punctum Books will be available for perusal on site.

The 12thAnimal, Neven Lochhead, was summoned for their 2019 þan-þan exhibition as its nascency proctor. It is a secular and equal opportunities confraternity bound by chirograph. @neoflagellants is constituted of lay actants dedicated to the ludic, ascetic, aesthetic and athletic treatment and dissemination of neomedievalisms.
Confraternity of Neoflagellants is an avatar for nonmodern world-building, a neomedieval theory-fictioning gaster-machine, a GAN-oracle of the not-yet-MHz. As a world-building electrostatic-#gut relic-ing technology, @neoflagellants patent pending nonmodern fictioning combines with mythopoesis: how premodern existences might be utilized against the impasses of hastily prescribed futures.
