Exhibition ~ The Library of Unread Books
Hello beautiful People :)
a living reference library with a collection of over Protected content , that traces the perimeters of knowledge and reflects on notions of access, excess and the politics of redistribution.
Every single book you find in the collection was once private property and has been donated by an individual who did not read it when it was in their possession. The Library of Unread Books brings to light these once-hidden-away titles to emphasize shared knowledge. The books, which are accessible to anyone who can visit the library sites, work to create a commons.
Reminding us that a library is both a means to an end and a research tool rather than an accessory, scholar Umberto Eco famously called for an “antilibrary” made up of unread books, arguing that read books are far less valuable than the unread ones and that a library should contain as much of what one does not know as finance might allow.
