The Reader is a project about the experience of reading and the way this relates to the artist’s practice. Maria Barnas interviews Rijksakademie residents, alumni and advisors on a book of their choice. A text based on the interview is included in each chosen book. The Reader forms an archive of reading and thinking traces. You can find The Reader interviews and books in the Rijksakademie library, Sarphatistraat 470, Amsterdam. Opening hours are: Wed–Fri, 11–17 hours. The archive will also be online soon.
