β€œFor me the public library is the ideal model of society, the best possible shared space, a community of consent – an-anarcho-syndicalist collective where each person is pursuing their own aim (education, entertainment, affect, rest) with respect to others, through the best possible medium of the transmission of ideas, feelings and knowledge: the book.”
Sophie Mayer – in Public Library by Ali Smith 2015

Continuing my research Public Library of in autumn 2018 - will travel to the US visiting public libraries, self organised libraries, independent bookstores, past and future libraries in NYC, DC and Chicago. More soon.

Earlier phase(s) of the project took place in Yogyakarta, Surabaya & Bandung; Java, Indonesia.
Terima Kasih to all the amazing people and grassroots organisations I've met. For sharing ideas, tactics and knowledge on libraries and self organization, access to uncensored and unrestricted information, spread of literacy, independent publishing and the commitment to create public spaces to discuss social political issues through the prism of the book and the (mobile) library.
