Cabinet magazine presents "Reading in the Dark": ­a selection of talks and performances that takes place entirely in the dark. Brian Dillon, UK Editor of Cabinet, discusses the history of the void in literature, art and art writing. Writer and critic Sally O’Reilly performs an invisible thea­tre piece of her own devising. Artist Jeremy Millar talks about the history and significance of the black mirror. There will be dark thoughts, obscure utterances and som­e black looks.

Co-hosted by Brian Dillon, UK Editor of i­nvited publication Cabinet, with Maria Fusco, ­Writer-in-Residence.
