The Library of Unread Books at Framer Framed with Read-In, 15:00 -17:30,

Read-in,

Event 07 Jan 2018

On Sunday, 7 January, 15:00 -17:30 we look forward to meeting you at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.


Bringing together The Library of Unread Books at Casco and the House of Wisdom exhibition at Framer Framed, we are co-organizing an event Collectively (Re)shaping the Archive with Collective Çukurcuma (Naz Cuguoğlu and Mine Kaplangı) , which invites Read-in Collective. They will ask us to address the books omitted from our bookshelves with a “Haunted Bookshelf Session,” a collective memorizing exercise using quotes submitted by participants in response to the question: “Why are the authors of the books I read so white, so male, so Eurocentric?”


Meanwhile, we also encourage you to dig into your own bookshelf for titles you might like to donate to The Library of Unread Books in exchange for a lifetime membership to the roaming reference library. There will be a donation booth at Framer Framed during the event!
