For her installation The Questions Library Claudia de la Torre (Born 1986 in Mexico City, lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany) is transforming the exhibition space into a service facility: fully equipped with a table, chairs, a reading lamp and the bookshelves, that are inspired by the interior of a library. The books themselves were mostly gathered in an open call and have one thing in common: A look at their spine reveals that all titles consist of questions. Claudia de la Torre is using the books as an artistic medium of expression that combines a variety of topics and will confront the visitors with questions. The library is constantly expanding during the exhibition, as visitors can donate their own books that carry a question in their title to the library.
Curated by Hendrik Bündge.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an artist publication in a limited edition, published with Back Bone Books.
