Escritorio Publico is a public service performed in Mexico, and some other countries, where people come to the Escritorio Publico to orally tell a scribaner a letter, a notice, a comment, or something that they need in a written format to give to someone else.
The transcriber listens carefully without judegement and faithfully attempts to convey the spoken words with the aid of the typewritter into a piece of paper.
In collaboration with NotaBene the artist will install a temporary and improvised Escritorio Publico office next to the papeterie. In this ocassion a desk, two chairs, some paper, and a typewriter will welcome people to ennunciate anything they may want the scribaner to transcribe.
