Libraries and books have a great fascination. They are spaces of collective memory and a store of knowledge. At these places of contemplation and concentration, a look into the book opens up new worlds. The exhibition “The Dream of the Library” illuminates this fascination from the perspective of conceptual art. The artists in the exhibition playfully address the collection, its forms of presentation and order criteria with objects, installations and films. Bookshelves and displays are taken into account as well as the reading situation.
