Product Description

The Library of Unread Books is a growing reference library that addresses concepts of the distribution, access and surplus of knowledge. The collection is home to over 700 titles. Following an invitation to Chong and Staal to showcase the ongoing international project, the library occupied the Jameel Arts Centre lobby and featured unread books donated by individuals to this iteration of the project in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. This publication captures the ideas and reflections behind this ten-year-long project and includes a text by Heman Chong titled The Book of Drafts, an unpublished piece by art historian and curator Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes and a commission responding to the project by Sharjah-based writer and researcher Saira Ansari.
