Reading Room

A pop-up installation by Tofu Collective

06.01.23 - 12.03.23

Reading Room is an inclusive space for contemplation and reflection on the nuances of gender, body, identity and culture through the perspectives of a broad range of voices affiliated to China and its global diaspora.

Immerse yourself into a kaleidoscopic and changing selection of art books, photo books, fiction and academia bringing together a diverse expanse of exceptional expressions of and attitudes towards contemporary China and the seeking of equality, freedom of expression, sexual liberation, and counterculture. Grab a book and park yourself in the large daybed or take a seat in front of the screen to experience queer activist and filmmaker Popo Fan’s documentary The VaChina Monologues.

Reading Room is decorated by Spanish-Chinese artist Yi Ten Lai (b.1996, Bailén, Spain) who presents a selection of works exploring the transculturality of materials, sounds and symbols rooted in the examination of contemporary iterations of traditional crafts and rites affiliated to her multicultural background. Conjugating objectual pieces – such as drawings, ceramics, and sound installations – with performative elements flirting with the rhetorics of rituals, Yi Ten Lai makes room for a space in-between East and West paving the way for a transcultural scope and dialogue on the perspectives reflected in the pop-up installation.

Reading  Room is initiated and realized by Tofu Collective in collaboration with GL STRAND. Curated by Martin Wendelbo, founder of Tofu Collective

Tofu Collective is a Copenhagen-based association dedicated to promote emerging art from East Asia through cross-cultural collaborations spanning publications, exhibitions and events in Europe.
