Libraries are generally perceived as storehouses, spaces of neutral accumulation and containment. While the architecture may attempt to operate in this stable mode, the material contained within them is often far wilder. Histories, biographies, loose thoughts, and detailed notations are temporarily suspended, cataloged, and organized, creating relationships where perhaps previously there were none. The trajectory of the Staatsbibliothek Berlin exposes the tension between what is contained in libraries and how it is contained in a highly palpable way. This new artist book charts three narratives associated with the life of this particular library. The anecdotes become both concrete examples and metaphors through which to interrogate the production, situating, and sharing of meaning. With texts by Buchanan and Ian White.
