Exhibition - Reading Room

A project by
Disjekta

in cooperation with
Württembergischer Kunstverein

The Reading Room shows in exhibition-like presentations independent publishers and magazines as a collection open to the public. The project reacts to the changing contexts, in which today often books, magazines and other publications are distributed and perceived. Beyond the established channels, there exists a lively, internationally networked scene of actors, to whom the Reading Room in Stuttgart wants to provide a platform.

Die AnStifter Stuttgart

in cooperation with
Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart

Based on the question of the extent to which society is being digitized - by the citizens themselves or by economic networks alone - the series of events Smart City - Smart Citizens? will start on January 10 for 2020. The presentation will focus on assessing the social consequences of digitization. Can a merely technical functional imperative of digitization, followed by the expansion and reconstruction of cities, even lead to a social city?

CLOSING EVENT

Sleeping with a Vengeance, Dreaming of a Life
(October 19, 2019 - January 12, 2020)

SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 2020
6 pm
Karoline Walter - Book presentation
Guten Abend, gute Nacht - Eine kleine Kulturgeschichte des Schlafs

Our current Exhibition Sleeping with a Vengeance, Dreaming of Life makes the optimization trend of sleep, among other things, a subject of discussion. Karoline Walter, cultural scientist, has written a book that deals with exactly that topic. The publication carries out a cultural history of sleep. How, when and where do we sleep? From mythologies that tell of the creation of the world from sleeping primeval creatures to the idea of a never resting God at work to the various conventions, whether alone at night, in multitudes or in bed with farm animals - Karoline Walter has uncovered them, the stories of sleep.

Followed by
Teresa Distelberger - Talk
Let's Meet on the Threshold between Work and Sleep

Teresa Distelberger invites you for conversations in her bed, which is part of the exhibition.
