Reading Anarchism – Nicoline van Harskamp (2013–ongoing)

In February 2016, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst hosts three Reading Anarchism events, as part of the exhibition Unstated (Or, Living Without Approval). The installation at BAK contains all anarchist writings currently archived online at theanarchistlibrary.org, printed as uniform volumes. For the duration of the exhibition, visitors may browse this library and print and bind copies of books they’d like to read.

Nicoline van Harskamp has invited a total of 6 guests to pick a single book or article from the library, and to present it to and discuss it with a live audience. The guests each have an affinity with the anarchist tradition, but the works they have picked represent very different eras, locations and interpretations.

It is recommended that audience members read the same texts as the guests in advance. Titles are available in PDF form online (see the links on the respective reading group pages) or as free booklets in the exhibition space.

The events are free and take place at BAK’s ground floor exhibition space.
