Anagramatic ABC



Dissemination involves a process whereby knowledge- in the form of free-access source code- flows unimpeded by any mercantile barriers, paywalls, or fees. This means using media spaces to boost the circulation of ideas, and restoring the use value of artistic and cultural production as common goods. As a common good, knowledge is not exhausted when it is used, but helps generate more/new knowledge, in an ever-flowing, open-ended process of socialization and communication.

  • Villalba Cuenta ("Villalba (Re)Counts") Sally & Gabriela Gutiérrez Dewar 2012,
    Collado-Villalba is a small town about 40 km west of Madrid. A boom-town during the years when Spain’s economy was fuelled by a real-estate bubble, it was hit hard by the crisis after 2008. Villalba (Re)counts is an interactive web-documentary seeking new narrative mappings of contemporary cityscapes. The site affords a space for reflection and debate where individual and collective identities may be re-territorialized. All Villalba residents, groups and associations (and anyone interested in the project) may upload their stories to the website and place them in a map– a new kind of map that’s more alive and more human, where geographical markings are connected with lived experiences and memories. Villalba (Re)counts tells stories of development and crisis, of cross-hatched lives and cultures in the urban geographies of the 21st century.
