The library is a reading list of sorts, a collection of materials that contributed in large and small ways to the conception and development of where is the power. It shouldn’t be taken as “recommended reading,” but rather some ideas I came across, followed and wanted to pass on. Hope you find something you can use or at least some threads to follow.

This is the proverbial book-tower next to the bed and as such the list will likely grow throughout the exhibition. Feel free to comment on anything from the list that you’ve read and/or to make suggestions of additional materials.
