Collective Investigation series

  • Central Library - Bubbler Room 201 W. Mifflin St. Madison, WI 53703 (map)

Collective Investigation series with artist Matthew Bakkom.

Explore the library using new methods based on the pleasure of mutual discoveries!

Collective Investigation is a casual social method of sharing the analog search experience. Over the course of the next months I will be organizing one each month as a celebration of the newly re-opened Madison Central Library.

Together we will generate a nuanced portrait of the library's collections and potentials through affinity and chance.

If you enjoy browsing the stacks and sharing your discoveries of like mind, this method may be of interest.

Each event can include up to 10 participants and usually last around 2 hours, sometimes more. Please rsvp if possible.

Matthew Bakkom is an artist and assistant professor within the Art Department at The University of Wisconsin - Madison. Since the early 1990's he has presented events and participated in exhibitions throughout the US and Europe, primarily in Minneapolis, New York, and Paris. His work is currently included in Codex, at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art in San Francisco.
