Mistaking aggression for rigor.
Mistaking rigor for aggression.
Mistaking either for the erotics of anger.
Mistaking the erotics of anger for being sure.
Mistaking being sure for another kind of doing-in-the-world.
–Oki Sogumi, from Corporeal Punishment, 2016
Joo-Hyun Kim, Ted Rees and Oki Sogumi present readings of their long-form work in an event organized by Sogumi for Artists Space. The three readers are poets and essayists all based in Philadelphia whose work is connected by speculative fiction, anticapitalist struggle, natural history, and materialism.
