The Reading Room

During The Grand Domestic Revolution GOES ON at The Showroom, The Reading Room structure functioned as a solitary reading room where it was possible to read out loud in the library. The readings were recorded and stored.

On Saturday 27 July 2012, the mobile Reading Room took a processional journey around the Church Street Neighbourhood where the The Showroom is located. Selected extracts from the texts in the GDR Library have been read aloud and recorded en route, before returning to The Showroom, where informal readings and recordings continued. There was then an open invitation to select, compile and produce instant zines photocopied from books in the GDR Library. See more from the day here.
