AAAAARG (originally AAARG, the acronym of Artists, Architects, and Activists Reading Group ) is an online text repository. It was created by the artist Sean Dockray and serves as a library for The Public School, a framework supporting autodidact activities. Aaaaarg has grown into a community of researchers and enthusiasts from contemporary art, critical theory, philosophy, and related fields who maintain, catalog, annotate and run discussions relevant to their research interests.
