BOGBØRSEN (The Book Exchange) is a combination of sculpture, a designed object and a bookcase. The bookcases are placed in residential areas where residents themselves can locally control their use and content. The main objective of the project is to create a non-commercial and user-driven book exchange in the public space that goes beyond the physical conventions of an ordinary library.
The materials and artistic idea support sustainability, recycling and green energy.

Dansk

BOGBØRSEN i Gentofte er en kombination af skulptur, designobjekt og bogskab.

Bogskabene er placeret i boligområder, hvor borgerne lokalt styrer deres brug og indhold. Projektets bærende idé er at skabe et ukommercielt og brugerdrevent bog-byttemarked i det offentlige rum, der rækker ud over det almene biblioteks fysiske konventioner.
Materialevalget og den kunstneriske idé understøtter bæredygtighed, genbrug og grøn energi.
