Overmorrow’s Library

Overmorrow’s Library is a podcast series by Federico Campagna (Faculty Berlin ’16), presented by the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève.

The library for “the day after tomorrow” is dedicated to books and authors whose work explores the limits of the “world” as the frame of sense through which our consciousness experiences the chaos of reality.

‘Each new episode presents a book that engages with the challenge of world-making, with the end-time of a world, or with the eternal unworldly. Spanning mysticism, politics, mythology, philosophy, video-game design and more, the shelves of Overmorrow’s Library are a space for experimenting with the apocalypse, and with the ignition of new cosmogonies.’ – Federico Campagna
