Books alone at home!

The book salon has been fully set up for a few days now, but since it seems hardly practical for visitors to embark on a voyage of discovery here at the moment, the books are taking on a life of their own ……

360° Buch Salon, books allone at home!

The works Lydia Karstadt has collected in her book Salon are no hot potatoes – but the matter must nevertheless be approached with a little courage. Tackling and opening up requires more than just a brief overview that exposes the works at a calculable distance. Approach with initiative. Ah, here is a stack of photo books. What’s in this box? Unboxing Streichelwurst. Underneath, Unboxing Latin Lovers… Funny, it’s not what I expected at all … ah … Latin for Lovers – that’s what the second reading says … Time slips away, new systems of order emerge and disintegrate. At the end, stretched out on the chaise longue – the flames in the fireplace give a cosy atmosphere…. To be continued.
