The German Library and Information Centre Pyongyang. 2015
During the Triennial the Deutsche Informationsbibliothek in Guangzhou (China), affiliated to the Goethe-Insitut becomes the ‘Deutsches Informations Bibliothek Pjöngjang (North-Korea)’. This intervention is an imaginary transformation of the current geography of the existing library. Under this umbrella a set of cultural activities is offered to the audience, just as a Goethe-Institut operates. This time, it includes a reflection on the library itself and the historical context of the reading room and looking into the possible parallel histories between the two Koreas and the former divided Germany.
