LUX Scotland at Glasgow School of Art Library, a collaborative project with LUX Scotland and the GSA Library, is Scotland’s first dedicated library for artists’ moving image. The collection will enable GSA students and library members to gain access to a world of moving image artworks; from early work emerging from the London film cooperatives that gave birth to LUX, through to contemporary practice in Scotland and beyond. We invite you to explore the relationship between books and moving image, and the rich history of moving image within art.
As well as being open to existing library members, we are pleased to offer a reduced membership fee to all SUPERLUX members at £25 a year (discounted from £40). To become a member, visit the GSA Library with your SUPERLUX membership number. Fill out an External Borrower Membership form and your card will be posted to your home address within 7-10 days.
The collection is accessed within the GSA Library. Library staff will buzz visitors through the turnstiles or gate at the Library entrance on the corner of Renfrew Street and Scott Street. The LUX collection is on display in the second floor space by the DVD collection, next to a television where you can watch titles. During term-time, GSA Library is open 7 days a week, 8am-10pm Mon-Fri and 8am-6pm Sat-Sun. You can find out more here.
