“AAAAARG is a conversation platform – at different times it performs as a school, or a reading group, or a journal. AAAARG was created with the intention of developing critical discourse outside of an institutional framework. But rather than thinking of it like a new building, imagine scaffolding that attaches onto existing buildings and creates new architectures between them.”
Det er snart 3 år siden at jeg første gang skrev om “læsegruppen” Aaarg.org – et forum for personer med indgående lyst og kendskab til teoretisk litteratur. Når først man er registreret har man adgang til et, efterhånden, veludbygget bibliotek af publikationer som allesammen kan downloades. Aaaarg.org skiftede i 2010 navn til A.aaaarg.org og efterfølgende til Aaaaarg.org. Men jeg behøves vist ikke forklare hvorfor.
Udover at du kan søge i arkivet, så er der også oprettet hundredevis af ‘læselister’ – nedenfor har jeg indsat en enkelt af læselisterne der er tagget ‘arkitektur’. Der er generelt et en del trafik på sitet og hvis er interesseret så kan du f.eks. følge deres facebook site (med ca. 5.800 tilhængere) http://www.facebook.com/aaaarg.org
