readings on the asphalt
Nocturnal readings
                  on the asphalt

The Project is a part of the Ljubljana: World Book Capital of 2010 project and includes many events that connect comics and poetry.


1. Andrej Štular, multi-disciplinary artist, creator of comics, puppet designer, scenographer, great experimenter, history explorer, and animator will be presenting three installations:

Center ZA is a spatial placement of small lighting objects whose luminance and homely warmth invite us to touch them or even settle in them.

Kons 5 is a temporary memorial of Slovene expressionist and constructivist poet Srečko Kosovel and an engaged statement.

Drevo (Tree), collaboration with Saša Kerkoš and Koco, offers us unusual fruits: comics in verses.

The Solar Lighting Object by Marko Kovačič and Brane Ždralo enables an uninterrupted public reading; during the daytime, it protects us from the sun and in the nighttime, it provides the necessary luminance and reading matter.
Cankarjev dom platform, until June 12th

2.  A week of non-stop comics-in-verses reading in the city center! The LPP bus stops and pedestrian zones will host and introduce comic creators Jakob Klemenčič, Domen Finžgar, Matej Kocjan Koco, Matej Stupica, Gašper Rus, Saša Kerkoš, Mina Žabnikar, Marko Kociper, Andrej Štular, and illustrator Petra Preželj. These authors created comics and illustration based on parts of poems by authors like Primož Čučnik, Marko Brecelj, Tomislav Vrečar, Ana Pepelnik, Andrej Rozman Roza, Srečko Kosovel, Joshua Beckmann, Pierre Reverdy, and Elizabeth Bishop. The project offers not only free massive degustation of two artistic disciplines, but also a new function of the existing lighting objects: Rather than the ads, arts shall rule the city!

City Lights, Ljubljana City center, until May 31st
