June 12-13th 2020: Virtual Commons Conference

Under the title ‘The Commons is Dead. Long Live the Commons!’, this virtual conference will discuss the idea of the commons in relation to the pandemic and digital transformation. Organised by the CENTRE FOR RESEARCH IN THE ARTS,¬†SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES, the conference will, according to its website “inspire discussions on the current modes of constructing, reclaiming, and sharing the commons.Through a series of debates with leading thinkers, artists, activists, and practitioners, we hope to produce a real-time investigation into how to re-invent the commons creatively, collectively, physically, and virtually.”

Amongst others, Massimo de Angelis, Pelin Tan, and Richard Sennett will be there to share their perspectives. The event is free and will be available as a stream as well. More info here:
