About

My Bookcase initiates and supports creative projects that take the physical book as a source for both research and practice. My Bookcase approaches the book not as a hermetic object, but one that can be deconstructed and explored through art, architecture, design, and literature, as well as with communities beyond these fields.

My Bookcase actively involves others as both participants and co-creators in the realisation of projects. These projects have taken the form of practical workshops, exhibitions, art commissions, installations and the design of printed matter, as well as talks, interviews, symposiums and roundtables.

Join our newsletter to keep up with all our projects and to find out how you can be part of My Bookcase:

Based in Glasgow, Barcelona & Amsterdam, My Bookcase work both locally and internationally with a wide variety of organisations and individuals including libraries, bookshops, art galleries, community centres, creative spaces as well as writers, publishers, designers, artists, readers and researchers.

If you would like to discuss a project with us, are interested in collaborating with My Bookcase, or just want to learn more, then do get in touch.
