Bioswop is a cv-exchange platform. The idea is to provide curriculum vitae, bios, resumés for people to use and borrow. With a list of several institutions, the assembly of a CV is possible without utilising existing CVs. The assembled or borrowed CV can be downloaded as a pdf file. It will carry a footnote 'this CV was borrowed through www.bioswop.net'. The project is entirely based on trust and involves no monetary exchange.
In best-case scenario the project should devalue the notion of CVs altogether, and their essentialist elements such as ‘origin’, as well as the accumulated trade value created through image exchange on the market place.
People can provide CVs and/or borrow names and programmes of institutions as basics elements for CVs assembly.
