Ad Mornings “Place of Living Information”


Ad Mornings “Place of Living Information”

OPEN SITE 7 | TOKAS Recommendation Program

This exhibit was created by Ad Mornings, a collective whose activities center on publishing a newspaper. While referencing places connected to newspaper history, such as the coffee shops that emerged as a site for cultivating a democratic atmosphere and spirit among individuals in the 17th and 18th century, the group creates a Place of Living Information to foster dialogue, and circulate and distribute information. The work consists of three elements: a display of newspapers, renewing the display, and a newspaper-reading performance.
