@ Tensta Konstall, Stockholm, SWEDEN
Matthew Stadler will be lecturing at Stockholm's Tensta Konsthall as part of their "Publishing In Process" series. His talk, entitled "Literature as a Common Pool Resource: from Ownership to Belonging," brings the work of Nobel Prize-winning economist Elinor Ostrom to bear on the questions of what is "private," what is "public," and whether economies of exchange can be set up without pivoting on the question of ownership. The talk begins at 6:30 pm, is followed by a Q & A, and is free and open to the public.
