Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

“VolksLesen.tv in Brussels” draws a portrait of the belgian capitol. We set the focus on what the city really represents - the residents. “VolksLesen in Brussels” is a cultural event during which the people of the city may read to their neighbors. At the same time the city is presented to the world.

Where will your idea take place?


Why does Europe need your idea?

VolksLesen is about people, not about politics.

What is your impact?

If VolksLesen had started 30 years ago, we could take a look back in the 80s. We could see how the appearance of the people and their language manners have changed. Due to books we can learn what is important to people. VolksLesen is a reflection of our cultural identity.

How do you get there?

In the first three years the project “VolksLesen” has documented reading habits in Berlin. Now we are changing our location every three months, in order to explore the interests and fantasies of people in other areas. So far, people have been invited to read aloud in the Wachau, in Bergen auf Rügen, in Zurich and in Coburg.
