Apocalypse Reading Nook
Within the fair, British artist Ama Josephine Budge opens a portal for time travelers with the APOCALYPSE READING NOOK HAMBURG, a traveling mini-variant of her installation “The Apocalypse Reading Room”: Upon entering the cabin, visitors* find themselves in an apocalyptic future - with the invitation to delve into texts that do not primarily look back to what was, but rather try their hand at dreaming as well as practical guidance to new worlds. Stay as long as you like, you have time.
With contributions by, among others: SchwarzRund, Naomi Odhiambo, Sarah Fartuun Heinze.
Thanks to Pakama Ngceni, Elin Letchumy Kuttimalai and Mariam Ibrahim from the Schanzenviertel bookshop for their advice on the book selection.
