This collection attends the SOMA Summer program on Scaffolding, the range of supporting structures (such as language and form) that mediate power, hierarchy, and surface across artistic practices. Scaffolding can also be transformative, and participants might consider notions of circulation, efficacy, archiving and translation when considering how to scaffold new forms of communication and visuality. This collection of informal publishing platforms, independent journals, podcast initiatives and exhibition literature should guide SOMA’s use of Library Stack, and help prompt questions and approaches throughout the seminar.
