The Impossible Library is not a library. The Impossible Library is a workshop. The tools of the Impossible Library are an inventory of over 1000 independent magazines and zines. We work with these.
In a residency program and event series, the practice of publishing is explicitly understood as a format for exchange to discuss social questions.
What is subversive publishing? What role do archives play in digital capitalism? How do publics emerge through people- publications -places? What can alternative models to entrenched cultures look like — niches, gaps, present, future?
The Impossible Library is open weekly as a reading, discussion and working room. In conversation with artists, publishers, visitors, the aforementioned questions are unpacked. Hereby, the developing positions and extracts are documented. They serve as a platform and friction point for the continous exchange between international and local specialized audiences and the broader public as well as provide impulses as to how to take care of the seemingly impossibility of this and every other collection.
