Problem Library is a cultural institution exploring new dimensions in the public interest.

By developing cultural infrastructure, providing support for contemporary art production, mentorship and education, we are building a layer on top of existing systems that will sustain the effective application of human work.

A material gift to Problem Library is a means of standing for a positive outlook on the world; it is an opportunity to be an advocate for a future that values the expansion of human perspective.
