A family art workshop relating to the exhibition Beyond Words

The exhibition Beyond Words presents books (as well as literature, stories, etc.) as vast landscapes stretching between a tangible, artistic object and a work composed of words and thoughts – as places between the earth and the heavens. One of the first things we encounter on our journey through such a landscape is the title of the book. A title can sell a book, or vice versa. It can arouse curiosity and provoke. And it can be crucial when we want to recall what the story was about, even years later.

The title is part of a book’s face, and encountering this face is like a finger wandering on a map of an unknown island. In the workshop we will combine imagination with the artistic possibilities of various materials and long-unneeded books, and together we will create a gateway to unknown stories. Or at least a door.
