After being closed for two years, PAM is happy to share the news that the Reading edge library will re-open at MDT in Stockholm during the fall of 2022!
Reading edge is a library dedicated to the field of knowledge processed within choreography, dance, performance, and movement-based practices. Reading edge focuses on independent and self-published publications by small-scale organizations, micro-publishers or individual artists. In this constantly growing collection, you can find artists’ books, magazines, zines, online publications, time-based media, and other related art books in experimental materials and formats.
Reading edge takes its form as a non-circulating library, a mobile installation, and a digital platform. As an audience, you are invited to move with the library, in its multiple formations to read, reflect, discuss, or rest. Reading edge aims to expand the notion of what a publication is and can do. The ambition is to gather a diverse collection and present public programs that activate publications and publishing practices.
The non-circulating library collection will be available to visit in MDT:s foyer during regular opening hours. In addition, a mobile installation, functioning as a curated shelf and a place to disseminate and activate publication practices, will move around MDT:s premises and beyond.
MDT is a place for dance and choreography with a theater and studios situated at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. MDT co-produces and presents international and Sweden based dance artists and wishes to be a place for development, discourse and experimentation within dance and choreography.
