If we are in a Library of Wood in which trees have become books, how do we read them? And if we realize they have all been taken without consent, how do we return them, and to whom? The activation/performance Reading Wood (Backwards) suggests restitution as an ongoing practice of memory and repair. With Berlin-based Portuguese performer Fabíola.
