Around the world, in defiance of austerity, citizens are coming together to reproduce their life together outside the authority and value-systems of the state and the market. The spaces and resources they create or defend together are being called commons, and the process they used is being called commoning.
As art and design practices increasingly orient themselves towards participation and community involvement, they are faced with a choice as to what sort of world they want to help reproduce.
Mondays, 10pm, from Jan 4 to Feb 8, 2016
Length: 10 to 50 min
For all citizens who care about the world we are reproducing
