THE UTOPIAN LIBRARY
In July-August 2008 the BAU Cultural Association (www.bauprogetto.it)
will organize in Viareggio a multimedia festival titled THE PLACES OF
UTOPIA, that will include art shows and installations, performances,
readings, workshops, conferences and other events revolving around the
theme of UTOPIA.
As part of this festival, I will coordinate THE UTOPIAN LIBRARY, a
reading room where the visitors will be able to look through a
collection of international artists' books culled from the E.O.N.
archives plus books expressly submitted. The books will be on display
in shelves and over tables, with the possibility of a direct, hands on
You are welcomed to CONTRIBUTE A BOOK to the UTOPIAN LIBRARY, either
an original work related to the utopian theme, or a book you have done
in the past that you think will fit the project. An illustrated
catalogue of the books received will be sent to all the participants
(Arte Postale! magazine n. 95). Your book will not be returned, but at
the end of the festival will become part of the E.O.N. archive.
The size, medium and technique for the books is FREE.
The material is not restricted to paper, but please take into
consideration the hands on approach.
Deadline: all the books should arrive BEFORE JULY 15, 2008.
