refuge: a safe haven of words

During the Passa Porta Festival, you can visit Globe Aroma for what they themselves call an intuitive and ever-changing library. It’s an eclectic collection of books in their co-working space. The books were left by people, donated to Globe Aroma or made especially for/by Globe Aroma. The books are not organized or indexed by subject or author, but together they form a random, organic library. There are many obvious gaps and we would appreciate constructive donations to help us build a better collection. The library is not a funded project and depends on donations to continue to grow. The themes of the books are broad: from novels about love to nonfiction works on migration, from school final works on participatory art practices to art books on painting techniques. For now, the library consists of two shelves that have already been through a lot in life (you can tell by their condition).
