During Wednesdays and weekends, the audience will encounter the performers seated at a large library desk in the exhibition space, keeping their diaries. The audience is free to walk around, read over the diarist’s shoulder, and flip through the notebooks when the performers are on a break.

– someone with genuine interest in keeping a diary (i.e., having a history of diary writing is a plus;
– someone who can be available during the entire exhibition period (November 16, 2023 – April 22, 2024) according to a pre-agreed schedule; every performer must be present every single day during the opening week (November 14–19); afterwards at least 3-4 performers must be present every weekend and on Wednesdays.
