Common(s)Lab is a neighbourhood laboratory in its becoming – a perpetual becoming – which aims at providing a platform for citizens to explore the urban commons and commoning practices through research, practice and experimentation. Its mission is to foster more communal and holistically sustainable ways of living and working which acknowledges our mutual dependencies and relationships with each other and ‘more-than-human’ others. This will be done in a collaborative approach involving diverse people, materials, and knowledges so that running the lab becomes a commoning practice in itself which can be taken beyond the local.
The lab will be hosted by the interdisciplinary project space TOP Schillerpalais in Berlin-Neukölln and start its activities at the end of 2017. In collaboration with architects/researchers Melissa Harisson and Conrad Kürzdörfer, artist Felipe Castelblanco and the non-profit organisation AoA.
