The library RAW Base is a rich collection of books, films, newspapers and other resources specialized in contemporary art with a focus on practices, ideas and works coming from the African continent.
Taking as a point of departure the idea that preservation is the main goal of any library or archival space, we ask ourselves how useful the ideas preserved are if they are never unearthed, juxtaposed, inverted, replaced or disturbed.
Check out RAW Base’s online database! You can peruse our collection of books and soon films. The database is a work in progress and new titles are added weekly.
