An initiative of the Library Challenge from The School

PublicReading is the first stage development of a new work that examines the peculiarities of people that use the Bibliotheek Hasselt Limburg. Developed from an anonymous observation and documentation of the library users over a one month period, this new site-specific performance imagines into the personal narratives that cross this private/public space.

Walking the line between fact and fiction, private and public, PublicReading  moves between these intimate glimpses into the people within our libraries and the stories they have to tell.

PublicReading premieres May 4 at 5pm, Bibliotheek Hasselt Limburg


Developed as a project from The School, an artist residency in Hasselt, Belgium
