Raqs Media Collective Reading Light

[Visual Arts & Performance]

Raqs Media Collective’s work inhabits forms as diverse as installations, video, performance, text and curation. Reading Light – the work presented by Raqs in Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic building for the French Communist Party at the Place Colonel Fabien – is a set of illuminated signs that use text, typography, light sources and electricity to conjure a renewal of human aspirations.
