The Library of Exile

Edmund de Waal

Jewish Book Week 2020

Edmund de Waal speaker

Prize-winning author and artist Edmund de Waal talks about his library of exile.

‘This library celebrates the idea that all languages are diasporic, that we need other people’s words, self-definitions and re-definitions in translation.’

The library comprises more than 2,000 volumes in almost all the languages of the world written by exiled authors from antiquity to the present day and has been exhibited in Venice and Dresden and will open at the British Museum in March 2020. Edmund’s talk is ahead of the exhibition’s opening at the British Museum in March 2020.

In memory of Dr David Cohen CBE.

Edmund de Waal OBE is an internationally acclaimed artist and writer, best known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels. He lives and works in London.
