Commissioned by Dia, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s latest project offers an annex to the world renowned research library at the Hispanic Society of America. Gonzalez-Foerster expands and updates that historic collection with a range of twentieth-century literature by some forty authors, whose texts will be installed in a trio of dioramas by reference to their place of origin in one of three distinct geographical regions: the desert, the tropics, and the North Atlantic.
