A library for all visitors.

About the project

Since mid-March 2021 the artists we have invited to the festival have been providing information on the Ruhrtriennale website about the books that have kept them going through the art-deprived times of lockdown. We linked this question with a request to bring us these titles as a gift in the summer. The resulting library is publicly open to all visitors from 15 August to 25 September 2021 during the opening hours of the Poplar Canteen outside the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum. The titles may be borrowed for a deposit and read on site.
