BEK have a library of litterature related to contemporary art and music, and with a particular enphasis on new media art and litterature for technical references. The library is available for reading at BEK, but books are generally not for loan.
We are open for suggestions for books to supplement the library, in particular books that might help build a basic reference library and books that might be of use to specific artistic and research development projects associated with BEK.
