The Library of Our Encounters is a long-term project of Swimming Pool within the residency program with Akademie Schloss Solitude, dedicated to what has changed most radically lately: the encounter—as event, presence, time and meaning. The library contains a growing selection of books, carefully collected over the last few years, but it also foregrounds itself as a possible space for a series of encounters among words, ideas, silences, people, aiming to reconsider the trajectory of our thinking in recent months of crisis. The library opens with a textual and spatial arrangement created in collaboration with Christoph Szalay and Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga.

Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga works between the realms of art, architecture, and urban research to explore the possibilities inherent in the intersections between social and physical spaces. Such context specificity finds working manifestation in curation, artistic production, and collaborative organization, all of which point to an interest in structure as a dynamic of living and working together. www.otherspaces.net
