Independent publishers, collectives and Brussels residents are taking to the shelves of the public reading space of the Diasporic Library to ask: What should be found in a reading kiosk that focuses on diaspora, movement and circulation? What items move in and out of that space, and how can we translate that movement into a publication?
From books and magazines to catalogs and zines - the thematic publications are selected by friends, colleagues, researchers and bookworms from our surroundings, such as the magazine SIKA, book shop Lagrange Points, the collectif The Kitchen and Isabelle N'Diaye. For a whole month, the Diasporic Library will be open, whether to flip through a zine or cowork for hours on end, for roundtable discussions of solitary reading, or a cup of fresh coffee.
Be welcome <3
