In the name of anti-productivity, Art Hub invited the public for a sleepy workshop by visual artist Mia Edelgart and writer Hannah Lutz on November 26, 2020.

They read aloud from various texts while the audiences lay down and listened. Right here, you can listen to the readings (in Danish).

All texts touch upon the subject of sleep in a broad sense, moving through genres, time, across species and borders, creating a web of various life and lifeforms that all share the urgent need to rest.

You hear excerpts from following texts:
