For the exhibition A Studio in Hand Reading: Charlotte Wolff Valentina Desideri transformed Kunstverein’s space into a studio—a place that generates knowledge through different modes of being together. Throughout the exhibition, Desideri invited participants as well as visitors to gather for readings and in study. The studio—and its bar—was open for readings during Kunstverein’s regular opening hours and was punctuated by weekly contributions to the study by the invited guests and artists. Hand Reading Studies picks up where the project left off, bringing together a variety of materials and publications that were generated in or reverberated from the studio. With contributions by Dr. Charlotte Wolff, Anthony Blunt, Céline Condorelli, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Jessica Warboys, Jason Dodge, Mia You, Christian Hawkey, Annick Kleizen and Valentina Desideri.
