Black Market of Knowledge

Hannah Hurtzig explains the black market of knowledge.

The transfer of knowledge as a communicative and performative act. The starting point is an interesting and current topic on which local knowledge has been accumulated. The market creates a space to retrieve this knowledge. The individual conversations of experts and discussion partners can be followed by observers (”black listeners”).
