another rock and roll library from someone you may have heard of

Former Clash guitarist Mick Jones “a prominent figure in the punk rock movement of the seventies and eighties, opened his Rock-n-Roll Public Library in London yesterday.” The library is, technically, an art exhibit, fyi. More about Jones in this Telegraph article. [ellareads]

    Hi Jessamyn,
    I would disagree that this is “technically” an art exhibit, even though he calls it that himself at one point. Jones let’s people ‘use’ the collection — handle items, read them, even scan them. The first instantiation of this was in a gallery space, but the new space is not. I think it is good that Jones wanted to pull together a collection that would get people to think and thought to call it a ‘library.’ I wish more people did.
