The Political Beekeeper's Library (2015)


The Political Beekeeper's Library is an effort to collect, organise, and activate books where parallels are drawn between how bees and humans are socially and politically organised.

The library currently includes a selection of 26 books about bees, written between the 3th century BCE and present day. In addition to dealing with questions about behaviour and social organisation the library also deals with anthropomorphism and zoomorphism, and with questions of science and philosophy in general.

At Under tallarna the library was presented in their greenhouse during their public gardening day in September 2015.
