Designed as a staging area for books, 
Ideal Reading invites visitors to browse, read and copy books, documents and other printed matter from the personal collection of a dozen artists, graphic designers and print-workers established in Berlin.

From Paris to Berlin, the booksellers box, originally installed by the Seine, has represented for centuries a romantic and vagabond approach to books and is the starting point for this exhibition. In Berlin the boxes become a generic pattern ready to generate new forms. A bit further, a library, a workspace, and a copymachine. The stage is set, the show can begin...
