The Library of Unread Books is a 10-year global project spearheaded by artists Heman Chong and Renée Staal. They started last year in Singapore with the aim to collect unread books from people around the world through donations, and they are now on their second stop. In the long run, they plan to put all the books as collection in a museum. Exciting, right?
Open Tuesday to Saturday, find the space at rooms 503 & 506, First United Bldg, 413 Escolta Street, Binondo, Manila. The library will run until August 26, 2017 in Manila before moving on to their third stop: the Netherlands.
This project is part of MCAD Commons, an exhibition programme of the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in De La Salle-College of St. Benilde. You can also visit their upcoming exhibition in the museum itself from July 13 to September 10, 2017.
