A2 眷村主題館Theme Hall

敝墟書店 Needed Bookstore

本館主題以「虛擬」一間書店作為故事開頭,透過策展人巧妙策劃將眷村主題館翻轉成為老屋書房新書展,命名為-敝墟書店,「敝」與「君⼦」相同,為謙稱的用語;「墟」泛指聚落,在此引申為推廣閱讀的知識集散地。而敝墟音同「必需」,是本書店的核心理念:「文化與閱讀是生活中的必須」。

此空間有主題書展、泡書區、視聽室、選物推薦、藝術家創作展等數個藝文角落,以藝文書香結合場域,營造園區知性氛圍,傳承原有日式建築的沉靜生活脈絡,逐步顯影臺南文化與蘊含眷村特色的豐富內涵。

The story starts from a “fictitious” bookstore, through which, the curator adaptively reuses the old house for a new book exhibition in this theme hall. In the title, Needed Bookstore, “needed” actually comprises two words in Chinese: “Bi” literally means a cultured and modest person while “xu” generally indicates a village or where people gather around. So, the combination of “bi-xu” can be interpreted as a gathering place for people to read and to gain knowledge. In addition, “bi-xu” has the same pronunciation as the word “needed” in Chinese. The core concept of this bookstore can hence be realized as: “Culture and reading are needed in life.”

The space integrates a themed exhibition, reading zone, multimedia room, favorite selections, and art corners for presenting creations of the artists. Through the artistic ambience, this public space is transformed to a cozy reading environment which enhances the cultural atmosphere in the park. The sense of serenity created by the Japanese-style building has been retained. Cultural abundance and diversity of Tainan and its unique history of the military community are gently manifested.
