Welcome to Institutions!
We are all members of many. Some we enter and some we leave and some retain our allegiance like metadata in constancy as we go about our lives.
If or when we leave, have a change of heart, or no longer need the access to tools these institutions provide, we escalate towards a status beyond member- evolving unto alumni. Within this class are brotherhoods. Willing or unwilling, it is a classification like phyllum. Irreputably it can be located that you shared an experience some may attach to formative identity. Your inactive present stance cannot repeal your Recent Activity. You cannot un-kick the crocodile.
In this I welcome the community that the memory of any membership may cull. In my old age, when the capitalist world has totally fallen, I will assume equal nostalgia for all institutions that by institutional nature, commodified my identity to further their mission. So here is an archive of those. If anyone is also an alumni of these institutions, please let me know. I will seed a community online to share our memories and reflections.

All Institutions Haunt Me, But-
there are some in particular that surface to the uvula and corresponding reflex. A special one located above in my drawing is the institution of Stadelschule in Frankfurt.
