BOOK & FOOD MARKET
Every Wednesday from 21 April to 23 June 2021, RORHOF celebrated its transformation into a social cooperative.
On the occasion, a Book & Food Market took place in the garden pavilion for publishers and farmers to sow the seeds of their cultural and agricultural labour jointly. A new space opened every week, inviting the public to explore RORHOF's underground gallery, bookshop, wood workshop and even its post box.
As follows, a retrospective overview of what has been.
Edizioni Henry Beyle
Henry Beyle is a Milan-based publishing house specialising in the production of limited-edition monotype booklets printed on precious papers. Pages are uncut to afford readers the adventurous gift of a progressive disclosure of the contents. Initially, volumes were devoted to bibliophile stories whereas at present the catalogue comprises prose, essays, novels and almanacs.
Riccardo will be presenting a selection of works emerging from his long-term research on South Tyrolean history. Taking its cue from Options (2020), a set of cards offering a non-linear reading of the events that led to the annexation of South Tyrol to Italy at the end of WWI, Riccardo will install a number of exhibits in Rorhof’s studio space to mark the beginning of a new collaboration, including manifestoes, audio tracks and a spatial display of Options.
Heiner is back from St. Konstantin with his silky yoghurts and fresh berries. His wines and sirups are up for grabs next to the bread baskets and the jams. There’s kimchi too.
And again this week: wine, cheese and organic fruit and veg selections by Agricola Foradori can be pre-ordered and picked-up in our garden pavilion.
Kids’ Books by Kids for Kids Workshop
This week too, Unibz’s MA student Tom Semmelroth will lead a workshop on children's book made by kids for kids.
