Program Description

Presentation of the prototypes for the API projects the TEACHABLE FILE and Cambridge Book, with Carson Salter, Sandeep Bhuller, Dena Yago, and Daniel Brewster

The TEACHABLE FILE ( is a working catalog of alternative art schools and
a reference on experimental education. First created in 2010, the TEACHABLE FILE is forming itself through communicative action and engaged research. During this afternoon panel, affiliated researchers who have been formulating a new site for the TEACHABLE FILE through the online platform discuss this collaborative method for community-generated archives and databases while engaging with the audience to consider additional features to serve its users.

Carson Salter and Sandeep Bhuller founded Cambridge Book ( as an art and theory bookshop in an office at MIT. The company’s website is built using the online platform as a flexible content management system. During this afternoon discussion, Salter and a panel of peers explore the technical possibilities for the future of small-scale book distribution and sales, a practical logistic in dire need of organizing.
