    Making The Public–Commons

    MAKING THE PUBLIC–COMMONS is an installation and a conversations-marathon project motivated by the ambition and need to elaborate our positions towards the making and building of public–commons, primarily through an act of appearance and conversation much required in our cultural context. The project relies mainly on direct dialogue and embodied engagement, two crucial forms of impact in our contemporary culture beyond quantitative metrics. It proposes and promotes dialogue and conversations around topics of—but not limited to—how and what constitutes the public and the commons, and why it is critical to appear in public today as we continue to battle the isolating impact of the global pandemic. Conversations include public–commons and institutions, commoning, landscapes, justice, measures, cooperation, water, ecologies, language, and appearance.
