The Bibliobox is a travelling archive holding documentation of almost 50 art projects
from 12 european countires that took place in rural environments.

The Bibliobox was a central part of Why We Left The Village And Came Back the Bibliobox was stationed at Belmont Art Centre in Shrewsbury. From there it travelled to a number of locations in Shropshire, on invitation by different hosts and also spontaneously without invitations.

The Bibliobox is as much a collection of art projects as it is a space for talking about art in a rural setting. The concept of the tour was to explore existing spaces and networks in Shropshire and to test and demonstrate the idea of a dispersed but connected cultural space.

The journeys are also documented on the Bibliobox website.
Look at the visit at Marja’s house, An evening at the Six Bells pub in Bishops Castle, or at The Hurst in Clunton.
