The Research Library is a continually expanding curated selection of exhibition catalogs, artist monographs, art theory, and cultural studies publications as well as works from theory, postcolonial studies, political history, geopolitics, and other fields. Together these materials seek to provide an overview of the key exhibitions, artists, theories, and discourses that made a significant contribution to charting the shifts in contemporary art and intellectual debates from 1989 till today. The physical Library is housed at BAK; an online version of it, complete with a short entry on each publication explaining why the book is relevant to FORMER WEST project research, can be accessed below. Please note that the selection of artist monographs and catalogs of solo exhibitions is not available online at this time. We are happy to receive suggestions for books to include in the Research Library. Please send an e-mail with the book title, publication data, and a short message to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to visit the physical library at BAK in Utrecht, please schedule an appointment (during visiting hours, Wednesday–Saturday 12.00–17.00 hrs, Sunday 13.00–17.00 hrs) by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
