 THE AWAKE READING ROOM
An Evolving Photobook Library of Protest, Liberty and Resistance
Free-the-Image-and-Free-the-Speech

Reading Room Locations:
PGH Photo Fair
Carnegie Museum of Art / Pittsburgh
April 29-30, 2017

Magnum Foundation / New York City
June 17, 2017
(At the 10×10 Awake Book Bazaar and Library at the Magnum Foundation)

The 10×10 AWAKE Reading Room is an evolving library of books, zines and photography-related materials that responds to issues of liberty, resistance and social protest.

Presented as either objects of protests in themselves or documents of protest by others, the printed materials that form the ongoing 10×10 AWAKE Reading Room have been collected through a global open-call to artists and photographers. A selection of these submitted materials – in tandem with historical protest and resistance photobooks on loan from the International Center of Photography Library – are presented in this new AWAKE Reading Room.

The books, zines and ephemera have been grouped into loose themes. No specific political or social agenda is endorsed by 10×10 Photobooks in the formation of this library. The sole purpose of this Reading Room is to explore the role of the arts and the artist during a period of significant political and social change. Please note that we do not sell these Reading Room titles – most can be purchased online via the artists or publishers.

Please browse and consider contributing your own photo-based work to future 10×10 AWAKE Reading Rooms.

Submission Guidelines for AWAKE!

This is a completely open call for photobooks, zines and photobook-related materials responding to liberty, resistance and the political environment of today. Please follow this link to submit your work.

We are receptive to all and anything that is created or has been created (as long as it is book-related). We only ask that the submitter tell us how their book relates to liberty and resistance.

The first Awake! Reading Room was exhibited at the PGH Photo Fair at the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh), April 29-30, 2017, and will be followed by a reading room, book and zine bazaar at the Magnum Foundation (NYC) on June 17, 2017. Only a rotating selection of the zines, books and materials submitted will be exhibited in the reading rooms. However we will find a suitable home in an institution or library for ALL materials submitted. Therefore, all materials will eventually have a home in the world providing free access to the public.

Submission for the PGH venue is now closed. Only submissions received by May 15, 2017 will be considered for inclusion in the Awake Reading Room at the Magnum Foundation (NYC).

Collaboration: A 10×10 Salon Exploring the Relationship Between Publishers and Photographers

On Wednesday, 5 April 2017, we gathered on Manhattan’s Bowery for conversation with some of the most talented independent publishers in New York and the photographers with whom they work.
The making of small run artists’ books and photobooks requires a special collaboration between artist and publisher. Each project is a creation individually tailored and designed by individuals working closely together: this salon is an exploration of the intense process of book-making, led by some of our foremost designers, publishers and artists.

Kevin Messina is the founder and creative director of Silas Finch, a publishing house and design studio based in New York. Its publishing program has established a reputation for producing titles of exceptional quality, with a unique approach to combining material and construction to support the artist’s vision.

Pau Wau Publications is an independent publishing press dedicated to the production of limited editioned books and zines of contemporary photography and art, founded in 2008 in Brooklyn, by photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath and designer Brian Paul Lamotte.

Jordan Sullivan is a writer and artist living in Los Angeles. His photographs, curatorial projects and prose have appeared in numerous publications. His most recent book, Remaining Light, was published by Silas Finch (2016). He is the co-founder of the publishing project 205-A.

Mike Tan is founder and director of Rubber Factory, a contemporary art gallery specializing in photo-based works.

Romke Hoogwaerts is the founder of independent photobook publishing project Mossless (2009) and co-founder of Rubber Factory Posters (2016). He has also worked as a full-time photo editor at titles like MSNBC and Businessweek.

Cole Barash is a visual artist based is Brooklyn who also makes books. His work is experimental and focuses on the color-and-composition dialogue between two objects or moments.

And a big thank you to Stephanie and Jens for hosting at their photo studio loft.

On Wednesday, 22 March 2017, we gathered on Manhattan’s upper west side for a “books on books” discussion with Carole Naggar and Fred Ritchin, authors of the recently released Magnum Photobook: The Catalogue Raisonne.

Carole Naggar is a poet and photography historian. She has written biographies of George Rodger, Werner Bischof and David Seymour (Chim). Among her recent contributions are an essay Saul Leiter: In My Room (Steidl, 2017) and a translation of Henri Cartier-Bresson: Interviews and Conversations, 1951 – 1998 (2017), as well as two volumes of poetry: Haiku by Night (Dobbin Books) and Voyage à Kyoto (Pixel Press).

Fred Ritchin is Dean of the School at the International Center of Photography. His books include After Photography (WW Norton, 2008) and Bending the Frame: Photojournalism, Documentary, and the Citizen (Aperture, 2013). The exhibition based on his book on alternative social documentary, “Bending the Frame,” will be shown at New York University and also at the Preus Museum in Norway in 2017.

And a big thank you to Deirdre Donohue and the International Center of Photography Library for allowing us to share a few of the Magnum photobooks in their collection.

Protest Photobooks and Literature from Japan and the USA

On Sunday, February 12th at the Magnum Foundation in NYC, 10×10 was pleased to hold an evening of presentations on Japanese and American protest photobooks and literature with photographer John Gossage and cultural strategist Danielle Jackson.

A highly respected photographer, John Gossage is well known for his more than 35 artist’s books and photographic publications, including his groundbreaking 1985 photobook, The Pond. Having devoted his life to photography and the music of Charles Edward Anderson Berry since the age of 14, Gossage is also recognized as an important and early advocate of Japanese postwar photography. Over the years, he has amassed a working library that contains most of the seminal Japanese photobooks, including protest books from the 1960s and ’70s. Gossage‘s presentation will focus on protest photobooks by both known and unknown photographers from Japan.

Danielle Jackson is interested in the efficacy of social protest beyond political demonstration. She will consider how strategies such as non-participation, spectacle, and self-invention have been conveyed through photography, performance, and nonfiction literature. Jackson has worked with leading photographers, filmmakers, and cultural institutions to develop projects, partnerships, and initiatives for social impact. She has worked with Magnum Photos, Stanford University, NYU, WNYC, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, MoMA, Tribeca Film Institute, and Open Society Foundations. She is the co-founder and former co-director of the Bronx Documentary Center, an internationally-recognized gallery dedicated to photography and social change. Her projects have been covered in media outlets including CBS Evening News, the Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Slate, New York Magazine, The Guardian, among others. She currently teaches for Stanford in New York and International Center of Photography.
