Redundant Catalogue Cards

Redundant Catalogue Cards

Part of a current exhibition on ‘knowledge in motion’ in the Octagon Gallery at the Main Library, University College London.


An exhibition curated by Claire Dwyer (Geography), Margot Finn (History), Stefanie Van Gemert (Dutch), Kate Smith (History) and Ulrich Tiedau (Dutch). Collections, like Universities, are factories of knowledge. Institutionally, they often appear to be rooted in place, but spatially and intellectually, they exist in constant and dynamic motion. In this exhibition, we ask you to consider the tensions between stasis and movement in UCL and its collections. Why, where and how were UCL’s collections formed, preserved and curated? Why and how have they moved across space and over time?

End Date: 12th June 2014

Opening Hours: 6am-9pm
