On CAMPUS: Reflections on Collective Knowledge Production
Published in The Contemporary Journal
July 2020

Using the format of a conversation, this text explores collective knowledge production in the context of CAMPUS, the independent study programme at Nottingham Contemporary. Written by a group of 2019–2020 CAMPUS participants, it is organised around five key questions which address some of the challenges when thinking about institutional and extra-institutional spaces of learning in a neoliberal society. Drawn from the fields of art, academia, and activism, the contributors to this article have reflected on traditional forms of knowledge production and learning, and the structural inequalities these systems uphold. The text is an invitation to open up further discussions beyond institutional arenas.
