Artist Youngsook Choi guides us through performingborders’ latest e-journal Rallying the Commons. Our collective journey through the journal included embodied interventions into its content, texts, and images to collectively explore other ways of working together.

Through the format of a Reading Karaoke, we experimented with communal reading as a site of radical joy, collective un/learning and solidarity building. During the session, Youngsook was joined by artists and contributors from the e-journal Ximena Alarcón-Díaz, Harun Morrison and Helena Walsh, all of which performed actions and experiments which highlighted their contributions to the e-journal and provided new collective pathways to their research.
