Read My WorldFestival 2015
Read My World is an international literature festival, focussing on a different region of the world every year. Instead of creating the programme from a Dutch perspective, Read My World invites leading writers from the concerning regions and asks them to curate the festival, forging new connections and offering honest and fresh perspectives on global, social topics.
This year the festival focussed on South-East Asia, where freedom of speech is a controversial topic. During the festival in Amsterdam, writers and journalists are offered a safe haven to fully speak their minds. We visualised this photographically by showing a momentum, freezing a variety of people in the act of revealing their identity.
