Literary Nonfiction. Art. INSTITUTIONAL GARBAGE is an experimental publication that endeavors to grasp the memory, feeling, and trace of an online exhibition that took place in the fall of 2016. The online exhibition presented the administrative residue of imaginary public institutions produced by artists, writers, and curators. Contracts, email correspondences, documented unproductivity, syllabi, scanned objects, obstacle courses, and other fragments were collected to illustrate the backend activities of imaginary bureaucracies, to trace the private life of institutional endeavors.Contributors: Alberto Aguilar, Anna Martine Whitehead, Brit Barton, Britton Bertran, Daniel Borzutzky, David Ayala-Alfonso, David Hall, Every house has a door, Fiep van Bodegom, Institutional Garbage, Isaiah Dufort, Jane Lewty, Jeanine Hofland, Jill Magi, Joao Florencio, Josh Rios and Anthony Romero, Kevin Blake, Kuras and MacKenzie, La Keisha Leek, Lara Schoorl, Lise Haller Baggesen, Lucia Fabio, Maarten van der Graaf, Mara Baker, Mia You, Michal Samana, Nam Chi Nguyễn, Naqeeb Stevens, Obe Alkema, Patrick Durgin, Pouya Ahmadi, Rami George, Rashayla Marie Brown, Renan Laru-an, Rowland Saifi, Sofia Lemos, Stevie Greco, Suzanne Scanlon, Tina Tahir, Tricia Van Eck, Vincent van Velsen, Zippora Elders.
