Leibniz, together with a host of guest artists, presents The Book of Blood, an ongoing performance and multi-performative experience that explores issues relating human rights and (dis)enfranchisement whilst aiming to facilitate the spectator’s active contribution in participation. Each visitor is invited to donate a drop of blood to be used as ink in the writing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into a thick, leather-bound book.

Study Boxes contain hand picked selections of DVDs, books and other materials from the LADA Study Room around specific themes. Installed in Festival hubs and other locations, and curated in dialogue with partners, each Study Box can hold between four to ten items and can be used by audiences for a quick browse or a day-long study. After the events the Boxes are returned to the Study Room and listed in this Guide so that users can explore these themes and materials during their visit to the LADA Study Room.
