Caveat is a collective research into the ecology of artistic practice. It is initiated by Jubilee, in partnership with Open Source Publishing, No New Enemies and Été 78. Caveat tries to find more sustainable, balanced ways of operating within the existing legal frameworks. And when the limits of the existing system are reached, it tries to come up with possible new narratives that open up space for reflection.

Caveat Reading Room #13: Commons or Commoning?

18:00 - 20:00
Jubilee, Former Actiris building, 6th floor
Rue Paul Devauxstraat 3, 1000 Brussels

Collective reading and discussion of excerpts of a reflection and discussion between Serge Gutwirth and Isabelle Stengers: The Law and the Commons (2016).

Caveat installed experiments to find out whether contracts can be active tools throughout collaboration processes and whether contracts can be a tool for reconfiguring relationships. The exchange between Stengers and Gutwirth, The Law and the Commons, is a unique opportunity to go deeper into the question whether written agreements could also become tools for commoning.

Copies are provided.

Reading Room #13 takes place at Hacktiris, 6th floor, rue Paul Devauxstraat 3 - 1000 Brussels
Time: 18-20h
