Simon Browne

An artist, researcher and self-proclaimed "contingent librarian", convenient shorthand for an ever-expanding list of actions he performs in his practice. He is a member of Varia and a graduate of XPUB, the Experimental Publishing Master Programme of the Piet Zwart Institute. Simon is the initiator of the bootleg library, a collection of republished texts and the readers collected around them. His work engages with the social dimension of publishing, free software and infrastructure that supports interpersonal knowledge-sharing networks.
