rile*, This Container, Monique Wittig (Collected Texts), P0$$€, Gloss, Translating the Bio-Text: a workshop, Moving Into Writing


rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings and workshops. *rile is the base word for silence in Laadan, a feminist constructed langauge developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. Laadan was designed specifically to determine if development of a language aimed at expressing the views of women would shape a culture; a subsidiary hypothesis was that Western natural languages may be better suited forexpressing the views of men than women. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter male-centered language's limitations on women, who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this. 

The bookshop is open from Thursday to Sunday from 11:00 to 19:00.
