Jaro Varga at Arús Public Library Guided visit
As part of the exhibition The Yellow Book, the artist Jaro Varga will share the progress of his comparative reading between the collection of the oldest library in Barcelona, the Biblioteca Pública Arús, and his own personal library. To match them, he exchanges their covers by drawing on transparent dust jackets.
In situ, we will discuss the interventions that, as part of The Yellow Book project, bring to the surface some of the many layers of knowledge that dominant narratives often cover up.

Jaro Varga is a Slovak visual artist and curator based in Prague, Czech Republic. He earned a master’s degree and doctorate from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and also participated in student exchanges at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw and Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in the USA. Jaro is fascinated by how until recently our knowledge of the universe has been expressed through writing – speculations, theories or theorems without a solid foundation in exact science and research. The subject of the universe and its exploration would seem to be a logical continuation of his interest in the principles of how the sum of our knowledge is created, including the continued failure or inability to discover how things “really are.”
