Title: Cocktail Library

Date: 2017

City: Shenkar Multidisciplinary Art School, Ramat Gan

Action and installation in the Shenkar Multidisciplinary Art School. Construction and operation of a temporary library and cocktail bar. The installation created a newly formed usable space within the ordinary school territory, and allowed for spontaneous open classes by school professors, parties and other activities such as resting and reading not commonly performed in the schools public spaces. Within the library the XOSHEN launched its first fanzin containing texts related to the establishment of the group. The books in the library were contributed by XOSHEN members and contained contemporary aesthetic and philosophical thought meant to create a relevant theoretical backdrop for collaborative art. The group found such reading materials, as well as a library space, missing from the Shenkar Art School.
