Teo and María Berríos read “Yo y mi miedo” [Me and My Fear] by Francesca Sanna. It is the story of a girl who has arrived in a new country where her little friend fear, who has always accompanied her and kept her safe, now grows bigger and bigger, making it hard for the girl to explore her new neighborhood and make new friends. María Berríos is an ex-sociologist and mother of Teo. She is one of the curators of the 11th Berlin Biennale.
Team members and collaborators were invited to check in, greet each other, and engage our extended community with these readings for all ages. Those who have visited our space in ExRotaprint know that we have created a one-shelf library of children’s books as a way of allowing the smaller ones to engage with issues explored by the experiences presented. Since we closed the space in March, we have been re-reading some of those books, as well as others important to each reader. We share these books as a way of reaching out from isolation to isolation with our unskilled voices, as a way of being together while physically apart. Our readings are in different languages. If you recall a book from our shelf that you would like to commission a reading of, let us know.
