Boiling Room for Hot Reading, 2018
reader, assignment, reading room

Initiated in collaboration with Andrea Salerno in july 2018, Boiling Room for Hot Reading was designed and produced together with Sarah Cleeremans. The project contained a brief and reader, meant to kickstart the academic year 18-19 with 22 individually produced works by all Werkplaats Typografie participants.

The work was executed at Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair 2018 as a site specific installation (a Reading Room) in MOMA PS1, in which the freshly produced "Hot Readings" served as a pre-text to take a break and in which taking a break served as a pre-text to read.
