Over the course of this summer, artist Dayanita Singh and writer Federica Bueti have been in dialogue –across geographies and time zones – around some of the main concerns and questions of their respective practices, letting ‘chance’ lead the way in a deeply rich and moving exchange. As a way of channeling this encounter and paying homage to Singh’s pioneering, genre-bending image-making practice, writer Federica Bueti will relay part of this exchange in a performative reading that touches upon refusal, value, identity, language, critical writing, the architecture of encounters, dissemination and art-making as a disruptive gesture.
