Collaborative Reading Space is an installation by Anna Hoberman consisting of a community reading room accompanied with a printed edition of twelve books, (their covers, two annotated pages and in a few cases, their spines). The reading space will contain a library of texts as an interactive element of the experience, allowing participants to leave marks and notes upon the shelved collection of volumes. Community members will also be encouraged to check out books, or donate a volume to give readers the chance to experience their own unique perspective or research and to expand the archived library. The artist will keep “library hours” on certain open Saturdays, to further engage with the community.
