The workshop is about using public space to discuss burning issues with the help of photography. The participants decide what to discuss and then work together to develop suitable imagery. The photographs will be a way to attract attention to issues in the urban environment.

Program The Paths to the Common(s) are Infinite

Thursday 12.6, 14:00 Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri introduces The Paths to the Common(s) are Infinite that is an attempt by the New York-based artists to situate and share various inquiries, experiences, and material traces of encounters, which have brought them to questions of the common(s). The commons have historically referred to shared ownership and care of land and water, for example in Medieval England, but what is commonly held today is much wider encompassing the cultural sphere, software, and public goods such as public education, health care, and infrastructure. For the artists, the practices of commoning and struggles for common(s) in an ever more privatized and economized existence are everywhere today. But unnamed and unperceived as such, they continually lose coherence and are often reabsorbed into a logic of capital accumulation or reforming an increasingly neo-liberal state.
