The Kornel and Naďa Földvári Library

From 16. May 2019
Esterházyho palác, 1st floor, Bratislava
Curator: Alexandra Kusá

The Kornel and Naďa Földvári Library is a project dedi- cated to Slovak writer, satirist, art and literary critic, book collector and translator, Kornel Földvári. Preparations started together with Peter Krištúfek, writer and director, who for a long time has searched for a method of preserv- ing Földvári's large collection of books.

His interest in so called B genres - adventure literature, western and detective stories, wasn't just books and the library; it was also about collecting or, more precisely, a collecting obsession, and cap- turing the essence of his personality. We've approached the Földvári library functionally, but we also added another layer to make its content visual.

The decision to operate the Földvári library was followed by an educational goal, as well as to pay tribute to people who have inconspicuously but positively shaped our intel- lectual space throughout our lives. The library will serve as another social space of the gallery - hosting discussions, lec- tures and other chamber events, as well as a pleasant place of intellectual rest.
