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.
The Library in Residence program at Despacio – curated by Random Institute – is an ever-evolving selection of artworks, artist books, and unique handmade publications that together not only reimagine conventional librarian systems but also examine literature’s role in contemporary art.
