The Reading Room by Konstantin Grcic

from 20.06.2019
to 20.08.2019

On the occasion of the cultural season of the City of Bordeaux devoted to the theme of freedom, the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design invites the German designer Konstantin Grcic to design a reading room.
Meeting with the writer Aurélien Bellanger on Sunday 18 August at 3 pm.

The 2019 Cultural Season is dedicated to Freedom. This Reading Room is its beating heart. The texts gathered here are selected for their essential character as for their poetic breath.
We thank all the artists present in Bordeaux during this cultural season who have nourished this selection and more particularly the writer Aurélien Bellanger. He will reveal in this place the episodes of his summer novel, published every week in the newspaper Sud Ouest.

Opening : Thursday 20 June
From June 20th to 23rd : Fête du Fleuve
Until November 3rd (extension) : Jardin Public

Sunday, June 23 and August 18 at 3 pm: meeting with the writer Aurélien Bellanger
