Enjoy reading in the sun!
The Spring Library is a mobile pop-library moving through the streets and parks of Oslo. We want to invite people to enjoy some color and sunshine and maybe sit down with a nice book.
Our main interest is drawn towards such phenomenon as public art, public space and artistic intervention in urban spaces. In our work we are focusing on following discourses: “intercultural”, “democratic”, “social”, “art education” and “art in society”.
Our wish is to create an artistic intervention in public space in Oslo, according to the above discourses. We see the possibility of working in collaboration with Library as means to introduce to the public, what is usually locked inside the institution, in this case books. We support the democracy present in public libraries and wish to extend this in a more radical way, by creating a low profile pop-up library to be moved around the city. The books and magazines in this library are donated and recycled material.
