Spatial Politics: On Commons and Public Spaces //Stavrides talk @Central Saint Martins

IMG_8270 Increasingly under neoliberal attack the urban public spaces become simultaneously the terrain of violent conflicts, the loci of urban movements, and testing grounds of critical political models. The notion and spatial materialisation of the commons, often springing from urban movements and public spaces, is perceived as a defense towards the neoliberal enclosures, as a creative power that shapes our reality and future possibilities and as embodiment of critical democracy. We are examining the idea of the commons, their contemporary relevance as spatial practices and the relation between the commons and public space.  The event opens with a talk by Stavros Stavrides and is followed by a film screening by Orsalia Dimitriou.
