The “Mediatheque of Ramdom – Observatory on Extreme Lands” constitutes a work-in-progress project whose function is to acquire, preserve and make usable works, process materials and documentation produced as part of Ramdom’s artistic productions and research activities since its founding.
To date, a conspicuous part of the heritage consists of what has been produced as part of Investigation of Extreme Lands, a strand of research launched in 2014 that has seen artists, curators, cultural workers and inhabitants of the Capo di Leuca take part in a process of analysis and critical reinterpretation of Landscapes and Territories, in their physical, anthropological and social dimensions.
Since 2021, with the move to new premises and the establishment of KORA – Center of the Contemporary, the same research methodology has been applied to the themes of Dwelling: the home, the village, the Mediterranean.
The bibliographical patrimony is about 700 titles including monographs, exhibition catalogs, artist’s books and volumes concerning the themes of Art and Contemporary Languages, cultural policy for the study and regeneration of territories. There are, in addition, a number of specialized journals. In addition to this main nucleus, there is a selection of books for children and young people, related to the themes of Art and those developed during artistic research activities. The Editions produced by Ramdom within its research projects and hosted residencies are part of the heritage.
The “Media Library of Ramdom” is located within KORA – Center of the Contemporary, is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is part of the Pole of Libraries of Apulia and the catalog can be accessed from the portal www.bibliando.it.
