What does it mean to gather within the language-based apparatus of the institution - within those places the institution provides, but which in turn reproduce the institutional itself? What can it mean to gain articulation in them, to have a voice within them? How could one open a space of speech inside the institutional realm in which one's own being-in-language becomes apparent and available?
