Az W Book Salon: Reading from Experience

Location: Az W Library
Presentation: Wednesday 14 December 2011, 7pm
Tickets: Admission free!

To filter out what is worth reading and giving as presents from the abundance of current architecture books that we otherwise only leaf hastily through, we invite you to our third Book Salon in the Az W library. The annually increasing stocks of books, magazines and journals are to be placed at the focus of a discussion at the end of the year to find the best of the delicacies among them. With an introductory look at new acquisitions, consisting of 912 architecture books, 189 catalogues and 1,768 architecture magazines and journals, Wolfgang Heidrich presents the expansive bibliophile's universe at the Az W. This is followed by a discussion between four invited guests who present their own personal selections from among the new releases in 2011 along with their own reading recommendation — regardless of its year of publication.

7pm Angelika Fitz, culture theorist, welcome address
