A Live Co-Reading of Provisions

In spring 2020, The Site Magazine ran a special online issue: “Provisions // Observing & Archiving COVID-19." As part of this special issue, we hosted A Live Co-Reading of Provisions — an online event series run in collaboration with the Architecture Foundation, Critical Distance, BEAT, and Triennale Milano. Five events held over eight weeks feature sixteen authors discussing each other’s contributions to this issue in order to develop new perspectives on storytelling, privacy, care, gender, and institutions during a time of crisis and for a post-COVID world. The event series furthered the objective of our Provisions issue, to collectively and actively observe and archive current events in order to build space for a better future.
