Recently, space - in its various concretions and manifestations - has become the fulcrum of social contestation: occupations of squares, streets, campuses. Encampments against gentrifications,

privatisations, commodifications. Test sites for new social

compositions, new forms of solidarity, new political openings. The

space is both the metonymy and the actual site where the processes of

capitalist capture of collective means of existence and secondary

exploitation of intense sociality materialise.

"Commoning the Space" presents and debates the strategies that the

cultural activists - artists, cultural workers, architects, students,

etc. - are employing to make those processes manifest, to bring the

spaces of antagonism to public attention and to mobilise a public

around them.

Starting from the experiences of struggle for the common, the

contributors will discuss ways to create a space in common,

interpellate a public around it, sustain new forms of social

organisation that come to inhabit it, scale and explode its

transformative momentum beyond its here and now.
