Insight as Insert

Ruby Waldo & ME Duno

Drawing from from past workshops held with Baltimore City youth at Enoch Pratt library branches, Insert as Insight questions how the book insert can act as a radical imposition of that which has not been written. On view in the gallery were the books and the inserts made by children in the past workshops. While reading series of guiding questions posed to the children, such as “what do you think happened before this story began? Or “What would you want your younger sibling to know as they read this?” participants created their own inserts for books in The Menial Collection library.
