Once a month, we propose a reading that is linked to the artistic field because of its content or context. The titles have been selected taking the current exhibition and the collection into account. With regard to the readings proposed, we will celebrate a colloquium at the foundation with the participation of artists, writers and curators. It uses the object as an element that has been socially rejected. Hanta destroys books, but he sometimes saves some and he accumulates them in his house within an existential solitude that assumes with some complacency.

I mean no disrespect and still I'm at a loss: why, all those years ago, was I introduced to Milan Kundera before Bohumil Hrabal? If you co …more Because Kundera himself has always wanted to be an author with world-wide impact and thanks to Unbearable Ligthness of Being, he became one.

Probably because his texts are much more bound to the Czech language and therefore more difficult to translate. And I would personally say that Kundera is much more easy to read and understand.

He died when he fell from a fifth floor hospital where he was apparently trying to feed pigeons. It was noted that Hrabal lived on the fifth floor of his apartment building and that suicides by leaping from a fifth-floor window were mentioned in several of his books.

Many of Hrabal's characters are portrayed as "wise fools" - simpletons with occasional or inadvertent profound thoughts - who are also given to coarse humour, lewdness, and a determination to survive and enjoy oneself despite harsh circumstances. Political quandaries and their concomitant moral ambiguities are also a recurrent theme. His works have been translated into 27 languages.

Una Soledad Demasiado Ruidosa

Like Closely Observed Trains this book is short, indeed barely a novella, but it is beautifully written and well translated into USian. During this time he has salvaged hundreds of rare books and stored them in his flat where they take up all the space and even hang over his bed, like a sword of Damocles ready to fall. The routine of his job is underlined by the repetition in nearly every chapter's first line of his statement about thirty five years spent compacting paper. This could be a metaphor for the dreariness of life under a dictatorship, or just of a relatively uneventful life in general.
