Rethinking marxism

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 3 novembre 2009

Rethinking Marxism and New Marxian Times are proud to announce the opening reception for the Martha Rosler Library at Herter Art Gallery, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, on Friday, November 6th from 4-6pm. Comprised of approximately 7,700 titles from the artist”s personal collection, the Library was opened to the public by Anton Vidokle in November 2005 as a storefront reading room at e-flux, on Ludlow Street in New York City. It has since traveled to Frankfurter Kunstverein; MuHKA, Antwerp; unitednationsplaza, Berlin; Institut National d”histoire de l”Art, Paris; the John Moores University, Liverpool; and the Stills Centre, Edinburgh. The Library will remain on view in Amherst through December 10th, 2009, after which the books will be finally return to Martha Rosler”s home. “In an act of incredible generosity, one of America”s most important living artists temporarily dispossessed herself of the vast majority of her personal library so that it could be made available for consultation. No borrowing was possible, but the eclectic ensemble of books on economics, political theory, war, colonialism, poetry, feminism, science fiction, art history, mystery novels, children”s books, dictionaries, maps and travel books, as well as photo albums, posters, postcards, and newspaper clippings could be studied at will. Smart, decidedly political in orientation, often funny, and all over the place (in that way a perfect mirror of its owner), the library is packed with essential reading and titles that even your better bookstores would love to get their hands on. As the product of decades of avid reading, the contents of the library are both the source of Rosler”s work and an installation/artwork that continues many of the concerns with public space, access to information, and engaged citizenship that traverse her entire oeuvre.” –Elena Filipovic, Afterall, issue 15, Spring/Summer 2007 A personal library represents the private sphere of an individual, her way of acquiring and combining knowledge. Accumulation is the result of an intellectual inquiry that takes place in parallel with a more random search, which can lead us to unexpected textual, and therefore mental, spaces. Martha Rosler Library offers the visitor an opportunity to approach this open source of information with her or his own interests, and to create new affinities and connections between the elements of the library that add to more than the sum of knowledge contained in it. The bibliography, currently in process, can be accessed online at http://www.e-flux.com/projects/library Whenever the Martha Rosler Library docks into a venue–be it a shop front, a gallery, or an office above a supermarket–it evolves in response to its new geographical and social location. A repository of knowledge and ideas, it settles, breathes, and lives again as new readers arrive and new discussions begin. In November 2009, the next chapter will commence at Amherst, another unique context. Admission is free. All are welcome. Special thanks to Julieta Aranda, Media Farzin, and Tim Ridlen.
