These Collections hold (without containing) an inventory of disruptions, propositions, and studies that are the work of contemporary artists, writers, poets, and thinkers with wide-ranging, playful, and critical interests in the five organizing chapters of the film, Bugs and Beasts Before the Law.

Each Collection is resonant with the din of a spirited get-together, where all guests are (g)hosts, shifting places freely: joining, unsettling, and elaborating the dialogic bringing them together. Works of art, research, and experimentation, together with materials from the making of the film, gather and regather, provisioning points of entry in multiplicity to assemble Before Law.
