In an age where public libraries are an endangered institution, media collections run by amateur librarians emerge as new, vital topographies of sharing. UbuWeb, a web-based educational archive founded by Kenneth Goldsmith in 1996, proposes a different sort of art history. Providing free and unrestricted access to a remarkable, idiosyncratic collection of film and video art, Ubuweb has a special meaning for Greece today, as it highlighted, through its spartan, low-bandwidth distribution, important questions regarding the notion of the periphery in an interconnected globalised world. Through talks, workshops and an exhibition, Ubuweb in Athens explored the uses of the archive in regards to artistic production, and examine Ubuweb and other shadow libraries, through the lens of its users and makers. The invited guests were Marcell Mars, Peter Sunde, Dušan Barok, Cornelia Sollfrank, Vicki Bennett, Prodromos Tsiavos, Craig Dworkin, David Desrimais, Tom McCarthy, Emily Segal and Dina Kelberman. The event was hosted by the Onassis Cultural Center and was curated by Ilan Manouach and Kenneth Goldsmith. March 2018.
