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. At the project’s core 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 at Columbus College of Art & Design’s initiative with Packard Library, and at University of Bristol, United Kingdom.

As part of Season Two: Follow the Mud, Heide Hinrichs installs more than 100 drawings, Inscriptions (2006–2020), based on drawings by artists in second shelf: Anni Albers, Lutz Bacher, Silvia Bächli, Louise Bourgeois, Andrea Büttner, Ulises Carrión, Hanne Darboven, Mirtha Dermisache, Ulrike Grossarth, Eva Hesse, Hilma af Klint, Emma Kunz, Lee Lozano, Agnes Martin, Ana Mendieta, Ree Morton, Meret Oppenheim, Lygia Pape, Lily van der Stokker, Paul Thek, Cecilia Vicuña, Annette Weisser, and Rachel Whiteread. In dialogue with these drawings is a selection of Columbus artist Laura Larson‘s photographic series All the Women I Know. Larson’s book Hidden Mother (Saint Lucy Press, 2017) is part of second shelf.
