TRANSLATION TOUR SHOW & HÖGERS ‘READING MACHINE’

P1040129In November 2015 German artist Angelika Höger, who is currently overseeing a selection of the library at her studios at Artists Unlimited in Bielefeld, visited Cork for a solo show at the Sirius Arts Centre. While in Ireland herself and Helen Horgan presented some short films at The Guesthouse from their ongoing collaboration.

Below film maker Matthias Müller is pictured leafing through ‘The Art of Amusing‘ by Frank Bellow and John Grant (1890) (BLF203); a popular title with the Bielefeld artists who have formed a group to work with the book. This is one of a number of regular groups now meeting in The LFTT Library at Angelikas studio in Germany to work with the curated section of the library that remains there until spring 2017.
