Flying books: a tribute to Borges


The space that used to be the main reading room of the former National Library has been chosen for this tribute of Cristian Boltanski to Borges: Flying books.

A collection of about 500 books are suspended in this space, flying and swinging with a faint breeze, restoring with their presences, colors, shapes and sizes, and the sound of the movement of these thousands of pages, the life of a unique space.
