Bioswop is a cv-exchange platform. The idea is to provide curriculum vitae, bios, resumÃ©s 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 â€˜originâ€™, 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.
