Join Melbourne Art Library for the second in their series of discussions about experimental modes of sharing information. The forum panel will comprise Nell Fraser (Melbourne Art Library), Caroline Phillips (Womens Art Register), and Nick Henderson (Australian Queer Archives).

What power dynamics are at play in the distribution of information? How democratic is ‘collective’ knowledge? And how are individuals and collectives disrupting the flow of information?

The Distribution forum series prods, unravels, makes-visible, and excites non-mainstream ways of information sharing. Engaging publishers, editors, and alternative institutions, the series explores active projects in Naarm/Melbourne that question the traditional flow of information.

Presented by Melbourne Art Library, a not-for-profit lending library exploring art librarianship as a philosophy and mode of practice; a practice guided by collaboration, criticism, and exchange.
