Random Institute is an extension of what a contemporary art institution can be, that is to say, truly unbothered by rules and bureaucracy. It is directed by and brings together
curatorial and publishing activities of the co-founders Sandino Scheidegger and Luca Müller.
Since March 2016, Random Institute is running the curatorial program at the international art center Despacio in San José, Costa Rica.
