Antoni Muntadas was Audain Visual Artist in Residence at the School for Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University in 2013. About Academia (Case Study: Simon Fraser University, Vancouver BC) was realized in partnership with Line magazine and the Audain Gallery and extends from a larger project first produced in 2011. This project investigates the complicated, often contradictory relationship between the production of knowledge and economic power, specifically as it concerns the structure and function of the university. 

About Academia includes the complete texts from interviews by Muntadas with significant figures in contemporary Academia in which excerpts were shown during his exhibition at the Audain Gallery in 2013. It also features transcriptions of panel discussions with Ian Angus, Glen Coulthard, Serge Guilbaut, Kirsten McAllister, Antoni Muntadas and Geraldine Pratt; Andrea Creamer, Am Johal, Natalie Knight, Didier Morelli, Nicholas Perrin and Jerry Zaslove; and contributions from Catherine Murray, Christopher Pavsek, Dara Culhane, Enda Brophy, Julie Sawatsky, Geoff Mann, Myka Tucker-Abramson and Mark Willson, Am Johal, and Carolyn Lesjak.
