Description:

"Institutional Garbage is an experimental publication that endeavors to grasp the memory, feeling, and trace of an online exhibition that took place in the fall of 2016. The online exhibition presented the administrative residue of imaginary public institutions produced by artists, writers, and curators. Contracts, email correspondences, documented unproductivity, syllabi, scanned objects, obstacle courses, and other fragments were collected to illustrate the backend activities of imaginary bureaucracies and trace the private life of institutional endeavors. Once assembled, these materials reflected strategies for community arts production, education, sustainability, and value assessment. Excerpts from the original show are reproduced here alongside new texts on the same subject. The result translates virtual source materials into printed matter. Open this book at random; read in any direction; put it down and pick it back up; fall into an internet hole."
