Description

Artists and theorists reflect on a “living library” project—people who memorize and recite books. The project documented in this book starts as a group of people who dedicate themselves to memorising a book of their choice. Together they form a library collection consisting of living books. The “books” pass their time in libraries reading, memorising, talking to each other, going for walks outside, prepared to be read by a visitor. The readings take place as intimate one-to-one encounters where the “book” recites its content to the reader.
