Library Underground: Welcome to my tent — Symposium: Photography in Print & Circulation, Valand Academy

The video document discusses publishing projects by artists and activists from the 60s until today that develop creative modes of circulation in order to (i) serve marginalised communities, (ii) to provide access to non-mainstream material (iii) or to counter distribution monopolies by developing alternative networks. In short: publishing projects, where dissemination turns into a social and therefore political technique.

Presented and recorded at symposium “Photography in Print & Circulation”, Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg, 2016.
The script is an abridged and updated version of the text “Library Underground – a reading list for a coming community” (in “Publishing as Artistic Practice”, edited by Annette Gilbert, published by Sternberg Press 2016).
