Abstract or Description

Our Invited guest Artist from the UK Becky Beasley will explore her reading practices and spatial imagination in the context of her circular and revolutionary approach to learning from others’ perspectives and voices. The slide lecture will cover the background to her unique reading of, amongst others, William Faulkner and Thomas Bernard’s literary voices. She will also speak about her new-found understanding of how all this is an expression of her autistic point of view.

PUBLICS and LUGEMIK are inviting you to join the Festival of Books and Voices.

Initiated by PUBLICS and Lugemik, the Festival spreads out through the months of September, October and November, bringing together themes of Publishing and Voice. For this Autumn, our space in Vallila is showcasing an exhibition of 100 books published by Lugemik, an independent publishing initiative based in Tallinn. In celebration of the show, we will have a monthly program consisting of book launches, vinyl sound lounge, lectures, screenings, pop-up bookstores, discussions and readings!

Festival of Books and Voices brings together book-related practices and the presence of voice – the two strands of PUBLICS that have been visible and active throughout the years, evolving through our public events and Library program. The festival continues the tradition of bringing attention to books and emphasising the context of our Library – a crucial and ever growing part of PUBLICS identity. At the beginning of each month, a scheduled event program will be announced.
