A book is closed when we get to the end. But how do we close an exhibition? And what happens if it is an extension of a book – a microcosm in itself, but also a running commentary on the printed word? Katharina Erben and Jens Imig (both from gewerkdesign, Berlin) and Peter Imig (Omniversum, Hamburg) talk to Katarina Wadstein Macleod (Södertörn University) about the work behind “Atlas”, how literature can be conceived in three dimensions, and much more. The author, Aris Fioretos, on whose critically-acclaimed book the exhibition was based, will be present. The bar opens after the event. Free admission.
See ”Stones Have Laws (Dee Sitonu a Weti)” by Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan. The film is an immersive initiation into the life of a Maroon community in the former Dutch colony of Suriname. Combining stories of African ancestral traditions and escaped slavery with enacted contemporary rituals, the film explores how the community’s powerful ties to the land have become endangered as industries threaten to devastate the region through deforestation and mining.
