estopim #em casa

empréstimo gratuito de livros e publicações de artistas


Estopim emerges from the desire to share books and publications in a common space creating an affective and at the same time explosive context.

Because we believe that a library is not a space where we just store and catalog books, but it is a space where a revolutionary and emancipatory power is always active, books do things with us and we do things with the books outside the spaces in which we relate to them. So
Estopim is a library, a collection, an ammunition to be here now, to be together talking, reading silently, loudly, individually, collectively.

Dedicated to books about art, art books, artist publications, prints as zines, posters, artist research, postcards and other books that do not find specific categorization and focus on visual arts, theater, feminisms, LGBT and contemporary cultures.

Estopim is formed from several donations and is organized as:

Anti-Newspapers / Architecture & Town Planning

/  Art Education /  Sound Art /

Visual Arts Catalogs /  Posters /  Cinema /  Body /  Curatorship

Dance /  Playwrights-Dramaturgy /  Feminisms / Philosophy /  Photobooks /
