Anthropological Research on the Contemporary is devoted to collaborative inquiry into contemporary forms of life, labor and language.


ARC's Homepage contains a rich store of our foundational work. Bios Technika presents anthropological equipment to orient initial diagnosis of problems and provide categories for inquiry. Recent equipment includes the Studio venue for collaborative work. Please explore. The Documents include materials appropriate to an anthropology of the contemporary.  ARC's Atelier page contains on-going experimental work on design, tool production, critical interventions. Please engage.
