Unlearning My Library Forum

2017 / Saturday 24 June / Forum / Utrecht University Uithof
 
The Unlearning my Library Forum took place near the Utrecht University Library Uithof to engage with alternative approaches to archiving, libraries, cataloguing systems and knowledge production. The forum was looking to create a platform that brings people together to discuss and exchange on different (artistic) practices, interventions and inquiries around (in)formal libraries, archives and their systems of categorization.

The forum hosted conversations and discussions in the afternoon, ending in a talent night with storytelling, poetry and music.

language: Dutch and English
