La Bibliothèque is an art project that questions the usual patterns of attention. Five performers intermingle in the daily life of the University of Amsterdam Library, each guiding a single beholder at a time through a series of “attention devices”: a walk with closed eyes, a nap augmented by the subtle touch of objects, textiles and sounds, and a reading practice that addresses the entire body as a site for understanding.
