SPATIAL DIMENSIONS OF UNKNOWN COMMONS., INQUIRY
Conceived as a collaboration between spatial thinkers—including, but not limited to, architects, philosophers, literary writers, historians, gallerists, media artists, and other related theorists or practitioners—this project will explore the idea of immaterial commons. The current edition will scrutinize the repository of architectural evidence produced by the militarization of the commons, or the ever-playful routines of the surveillant mandate. That which is spatially articulated but remains unaddressed by the field; the protocols of control, rituals of reassurance, syntaxes of communion, artifacts of automation are only some of the elements of this assemblage.
As a community, "x-commons" is aiming to mobilize proactive thinkers and doers who generally disregard polity as an agency of change, and instead act independently from existing populist agendas, people who measure time in cultural centuries not political decades, and will rather act upon constants than temporalities.
