Architectures of Knowledge

Architectures of Knowledge is a series of workshops that brings together activists, scholars, artists, and librarians concerned with global inequalities facing knowledge work. These manifest in the aggregation of material and scientific archives in northern Europe and America; the pay-walls constructed by the corporate publishing industry; and the amassing of digital labor in the Global South while the prestige economy remains in the Global North. Together, we will investigate technological and artistic practices of epistemic action, build alliances across borders and economies, share notes, and outline possibilities for further concerted action.
