Schnock - cross reading on the lower deck

real audio recording
by Dan Armstrong



In the park surrounding the Wilhem Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, as part of the public library by Clegg & Guttmann, we found an old, soaking wet book: "Schnock, ein Roman von See und Sümpfen", a Danish novel by Sven Fleuron , published in 1924 in Old German lettertype. In the evening of the 14th of October, we distribute the ripped out, still damp pages to our audience, and read them out loud together simultaneously. After this chorus has faded out, the pages are made into little paper boats and set out into the water.
