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.

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.

Submissions are now closed.

———BUY THE BOOK!———

CLAP! 10×10 Contemporary Latin American Photobooks is a photobook reading room that presents 130 contemporary Latin American photobooks from 2000 to 2016. Organized by the nonprofit 10×10 Photobooks, the project launched at the PGH Photo Fair at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh from 13-15 May, 2016 and was exhibited at the Aperture Foundation in New York City from 2-5 November, 2016 and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) from 2 March – 8 April, 2017. The reading room will conclude its tour at FoLA: Fototeca Latinoamericana from 29 November to December 3, 2017.  All the books in the CLAP! reading room were donated as a complete collection to the Hirsch Library at the MFAH in March 2017.

Selected by 12 Latin American specialists (either in teams or individually), the reading room is a hands-on opportunity for North American audiences to browse a range of recently published Latin American photobooks that are rarely seen or available in the US. The selected books, representing many of the most exciting innovations in contemporary Latin American photography and publications, will be documented in the forthcoming (Release: March 2017) comprehensive CLAP! book, designed by Ricardo Báez with essays by Luis Weinstein and Joaquim Marçal F. de Andrade.
