The Apocalypse Reading Room Residency Sharing
Mohammed Z Rahman
The Apocalypse Reading Room is an installation by speculative writer and artist Ama Josephine Budge: an on-site library, a world of talking stories in the face of environmental and social transformation, a gathering of all the books we might need to change the end of the world. The installation is installed in Toynbee Studios’ Arts Bar & Café for the summer months from 1 July – 30 September 2021.
Mohammed Z Rahman and Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson are the two artists selected to be in residence with the Reading Room over the summer, to sit in and with the space and to use this time as a chance to think, read and create in silence as well as in conversation with one another, the project’s founder/curator artist Ama Josephine Budge and the books themselves.
Join us for an evening sharing in the Reading Room hosted by Mohammed with the bare minimum collective, whose literary work can be found in the installation. This intimate conversation will be a chance to share, talk and reflect on the possible futures that already exist within the minds and intentions of books and their authors.
The conversation is chaired by Ama Josephine Budge.
The event will be recorded and shared online in September.
