Source: Notes for an Art School, edited by Mai Abu ElDahab, Anton Vidokle, Florian Waldvogel, is an anthology of essays and interviews by international artists, curators, theorists and educators on the topic of art education. Contributors are Mai Abu ElDahab, Babak Afrassiabi, Julie Ault, Martin Beck, Liam Gillick, Boris Groys, Olaf Metzel, Haris Pellapaisiotis, Tobias Rehberger, Walid Sadek, Nasrin Tabatabai, Jan Verwoert, Anton Vidokle and Florian Waldvogel. It was printed on a risograph in two colours.  
Notes for an Art School was originally commissioned by Manifesta 6, which was to take place in Cyprus, but was cancelled due to political tensions. Dexter Sinister had already produced and distributed the book at a conference organised by Manifesta. After the official book was cancelled together with the event, they produced a bootleg version with a new cover, made available through Lulu, but were forced to remove it with a threat of litigation. This is a third version produced specifically for the Piracy Collection with yet another new cover, a snapshot of Dexter Sinister's Nicosia office, with graffiti-enhanced Dexter Sinister logo.
