He (Umberto Eco red.) said, “I like the notion of stubborn incuriosity. To cultivate a stubborn incuriosity, you have to limit yourself to certain areas of knowledge. You cannot be totally greedy. You have to oblige yourself not to learn everything. Or else you will learn nothing.”

They hold things. They let things go.”

A Donkey Ear is an event by Mathijs van Geest IN THE LIBRARY. It could have happened spontaneously after using the library many times, but on this occasion it is organised, to notify the visitors when and where it takes place.

  • IN THE LIBRARY is a monthly series of public one-evening events in the Library of Kunst- og designhøgskolen i Bergen. It serves as a platform that encourages a discourse specifically on the topic of library/archive/book as well as on the conventions of the presentation, reception and discussion of art. It features selected local artists and national and international guests.
    IN THE LIBRARY focuses on the library as an alternative space to present and talk about art.
