Back home

After a beautiful summer it feels quite all right to be back at the desk in my little study.

As far as work goes, this autumn will be divided into three intermingeling projects.

  1. I will be writing art- and literature reviews for the newspaper.
  2. I wil be teaching art theory.
  3. I will continue basic research for my personal writing project: HOME

The stacks of books you see are related to two of these three projects. The first one is showing books related to number 3. These are books I actively use in my own writing; Bakewell on Montaigne, great nature writers, Annie Dillard etc.

The second image shows new books on my shelf that might be of interest to my personal project, but which I haven’t had time to properly check out yet.

This edgewise picture show some of the texts I will use as inspiration for my Art School course. As you can see there are lots of theory to be read, so not to fool myself, I found it wise to include Elikns book Why Art Cannot Be Taught

Norwegian books for review are not yet here, but it will be another stack to consider.

    Nice book stacks! I’m seeing tons of interesting books I’d love to hear more about. John Berger’s Ways of Seeing is one I’ve been hoping to get to for a while now.

    I love the way you grouped your books! I used to read a lot of Brookner but haven’t in a while. I often pull Berger’s Ways of Seeing off the shelf. Loved May Sarton’s Journal of a Solitude. And you know I love Dillard. Nice to discover your blog.
