Unbinding the Library

Unbinding the Library by Andrew Beccone

Unbinding the Library will consider the physical, historical, and ecological relationships between the Reanimation Library and Gowanus—the neighborhood in which the library is situated. Starting at the Reanimation Library, participants will reproduce images from the library that correspond to one of the above categories and then, as a group, we will post these images at sites in the neighborhood that resonate with the categories and the individuals on the walk. Unbinding the Library will prompt the library—itself an imperfect attempt to codify, organize, and control information—to spontaneously release some of its contents into the more loosely structured organization of its immediate urban setting.

This way holds 6 people and is presented in partnership with the Reanimation Library.
