0. About Monday

What: Meeting / Conversation
When: Monday, November 4 (from 5:15 to 7:15)
Where: 16 Beaver Street
Who: Free and open to all

We will follow up from last week's conversation on Commoning the City with Ben and David by attempting to map out together critical questions for us around the urban common(s) and a struggle toward a politics of the common(s) in general.

Beginning by looking closely at David Harvey's text from Rebel Cities on the Urban Common(s), we will search for clues and potential problems which emerge through the text. There have also been several related conversations over these last weeks in the city, around questions of commoning the city, which we will also try to include insights from.

As an additional resource and to conjoin to the questions of withdrawing from the community of money, autonomy of everyday reproduction, and potential processes of (r)urban commoning, we will also be suggesting "Defending, Reclaiming and Reinventing the Commons" - a text which we first shared in our Beyond Good and Evil Commons meetings in 2011, by Maria Mies & Veronika Benholdt-Thomsen.

2. Some Outstanding Questions from Last Week

What kinds of spaces and times do practices of commoning produce and reproduce? And what kinds of social relations are engendered in such practices inside a city? How could different forms of common(s) shape experiences of the urban and processes of "urbanization" (rurbanization?) which could counter the modes of capitalist urbanization (which poison, destroy, dispossess, and displace the residents of the city - and countryside - who don't possess or don't want to employ the social power of money)?
