When you enter Constant’s library you realise that it is the gift he gave himself. The taylor made bookcases and matching library stairs breathe a love of books that is only matched by his love for animals and instruments. Constant’s love of literature, theory, politics and philosophy is like a red thread though his work so it was clear that before the foundation could decide what to do with the library, it needed to be documented. In 2018 the foundation made a plan to document and digitalise the library and started looking for funds.
The library can now be viewed on the website of Foundation Constant, click here.
