Architecture Foundation’s Bedtime Stories, 2020
11 February, 2021
In response to the first COVID-19 lockdown, which caused the closure of all live venues, London’s Architecture Foundation created an ambitious 100-day programme of online events (100 weekdays from Monday April 6th 2020 to Thursday August 27th 2020). The channel often showed three or four lectures, readings, films, or performances a day. One element of the programme was called Bedtime Stories, organised by Alicia Pivaro, which aired live on Instagram (20-40 minutes long) beginning at 9pm each weekday evening, totalling 74 readings available online. Of these, the 20 in this collection were written by women.
