Dušan Barok: Monoskop.org


An exercise in learning, a cultural resource, a shadow library, an avant-garde Wikipedia, and a tactic for intervening in three kinds of practices, those of art, of publishing and of scholarship. Monoskop.org has be called many names. Dušan, its founding editor, is passing through New York these days and will share his experience of operating in the restless waters of the internet, once as a ship, once as a swarm of jellyfish.

Dušan Barok is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands, looking into how to make the contemporary last forever.
