Composing Differences is a montage of theoretical and speculative texts, conversations, fictions, and documents exploring different tactics of production and intellectual exchange that operate in the interstices between artistic, educational, and political contexts, and imagine novel institutional forms.

At a time when a rhetorical crisis dominates the economic world, when politics and media are pretexts for a growing privatization of knowledge, this book deploys a compilation of possible practices for the invention of dynamic commons.

Edited by curator and writer Virginie Bobin, Composing Differences follows on from the eponymous program of research and events organized in the context of the ART² festival held in New York in April 2014.

The book is part of the New York series, co-published with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
