Marathon Reading of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's Dictee

Join us for a marathon reading of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha‘s avant-garde classic, Dictee, organized by Sarah Schulman at Performance Space New York. Featuring Theresa’s brother John Cha, Yong Soon Min, Lawrence Rinder, Ken ChenNuar Alsadir, Lee Ann Brown, Alexander Chee, Ava Chin, Kandice Chuh, Una Chung, Monika Gagnon, Erica Cho, Cathy Park Hong, Patricia Spears Jones, Laura Hyun Yi Kang, Mia Kang, Myung Mi Kim, Catherine Lord, Stefanie Mar, Tracie Morris, carlos motta, Meena Nanji, Bina Sharif, Aldrin Valdez, Cecilia Vicuña, Sarah Wang, John Yau, Soyoung Yoon, Monica Youn and more.


Some thirty years after her sudden death, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s work remains a force in the fields of visual arts, avant-garde poetry, and feminist theory. From her early scholarship on French deconstruction to her video and performance art to her landmark book Dictee, Cha carved a singular space within the history of art, a one-woman avant-garde. Her work, described, in turns, as illegible, de-colonizing, avant-garde, stuttering, provokes us into new understandings of history, language, and the body.

Please note that this is an offsite event, held at Performance Space New York.
