The MBC Cooperative (Melanie Manos & Sarah Buckius): The MBC @ The Library

The MBC @ The Library

The MBC Cooperative (Melanie Manos & Sarah Buckius)

The ManosBuckius Cooperative presents this performance to illuminate libraries of the past, present, and future. Performers’ patterns of movement emblematize the shift from analogue to digital books, and from human to robotic librarians. Our actions pay tribute to pink labor, the gender wage gap, and the emotional labor of librarians.
