Nocturnal readings
                  in the park

Three times three day weekends will be spent in three of the Ljubljana's parks. The daytime will be spent in a nice shade and the nighttime in a pleasant light. However, always with a book or a magazine in hand.


The lighting objects by Marko Kovačič, Brane Ždralo, Marko Crnobrnja (from the Štap i Kanap redesign studio), and Aleš Presetnik are uniting park visitors, that are divided into daily and nightly, into one big, enthusiastic readership.


Let us get together in a bold literature reading in the public space! Let us open comic books that our parents used to hide from us, or poetry, for which we had always thought was meant for the chosen ones; let's get acquainted with Mladina magazine's existing social problems; let us consume the pleasant ambient of the parks in the night time too.


"In times when publishing is in crisis and when books undeservedly lose power, readers too are losing chances to fight back. Unfortunately, books cannot survive without them, and readers are not aware that they cannot go on without them. That is why Marko Crnobrnja decided to help the books and created a trap for readers. As it seems this is the only way for the book to end up in the hands of readers."
