The Temporary Library

The Temporary Library project starts from reconsidering libraries as dynamic and independent forms that can be created, contributed and shared. It metaphorically breaks the library walls, making a curated selection of publications exposed to a broader public, acting as both archive and distribution. The Temporary Library for transmediale, co-curated by Alessandro Ludovico and Annette Gilbert, has been conceived to reflect the history and participants of transmediale and the Berlin-related media art scene. Publishers has been asked to donate publications, and a specific space will be dedicated to read and get in touch. At the end of the festival the Temporary Library will be donated to the Universit√§t der K√ľnste, and will form a special collection, available to be temporary lent as a whole, under certain conditions.
