second shelf, initiated in 2018 by Brussels-based German artist Heide Hinrichs, is a collaborative book acquisition project and multi-institutional, international effort to increase library holdings of publications by non-binary, female, and queer artists and artists of color. The core of the project is the formation of a new collection of books in the library of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, and simultaneously acquired through Beeler Gallery’s initiative with Packard Library at Columbus College of Art & Design, and at University of Bristol, UK.

Since October 2018, a series of interventions, shelf talks, have taken place in the library of Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, where Hinrichs teaches. These interventions are gestures of care and attention that creatively highlight the presence of the new collection and contextualize its ambitions. This shelf talk #8 will take place at New York Art Book Fair, MoMA PS1. second shelf advisors are convening in person for the first time during New York Art Book Fair as part of the public programming of The Classroom. The conversation about publishing, libraries, and artistic and institutional identities will inform a future publication on the project. A website that functions as an inventory is at second-shelf.org.
