-- Freedom is not Free - Mashid Mohadjerin --
This artist’s book focuses on the private and public world of Iranian women who grew up after the Revolution of 1979 and on places of significance from Mohadjerin’s childhood. For these women the political can no longer be separated from the personal – their bodies, their private and public life have been and continue to be influenced by the Revolution.

-- shelf documents: art library as practice - Heide Hinrichs --
How can art libraries be generative resources and sites of action for all who identify as queer, as women, as Black, as Indigenous, as people of colour? What does it mean to consider the art library as a collective practice that spans multiple scales? In 'shelf documents' artists, writers, curators, teachers, and librarians reflect on their engagements with books, libraries and art-library-as-practice.
