Born in New York City in the mid-1970’s, Sam Gould was the co-founder and editor of Red76, an expanded publication that materialized in Portland, Oregon, in the early 2000s. Instrumentalizing ideas around publication as an act of public making, Gould's work manifests publics through the implementation of ad-hoc educational structures and discursive gatherings. While these actions are often situated in what is called “public space,”—such as street corners, laundromats, taverns, and the like—the pedagogy of their construction is meant to call into question the relationships, codes, and hierarchies embedded within these landscapes from one incident of publication to the next.

Gould has taught within the graduate department for social practice at the California College of the Arts and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He has written, as well as lectured extensively within the United States and abroad, on issues of sociality, education, and encountering the political within daily life. His most current platform, Beyond Repair, functions as a site of questioning within the 9th Ward of Minneapolis. Beyond Repair is a publication of Tools in Common, the expanded publishing house of which Gould is the founder and editor.
