This public reading performance is based on Keren Cytter's novel White Diaries, which is a collection of Cytter's journal entries from the winter of 2009. The foreword reads: "This diary is half baked. It's made up of fifty percent sincerity and fifty percent secrets, which were deleted during editing. This diary is half real, nothing here is fictitious, but not everything is told."
This is a durational performance; the chapters of the novel will be read aloud by actor Nick Chase and actress Candace Thompson. This is a public event and guests may come and go as they wish between the hours of 3pm and 10pm.
Keren Cytter, born in Israel, lives and works in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Berlin (Germany). She is a recipient of The Baloise Art Prize 2006 and has held solo exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (2004), the Kunsthalle Zürich and Frankfurter Kunstverein (2005), and most recently at the Kunst-Werke in Berlin.
This event is organized in conjunction with The Book Lovers exhibition and made possible by the generous support of Israel's Office of Cultural Affairs in New York.
