Media | Practices | Commoning

International Conference, University of Konstanz

Organized by the DFG-Research Group “Media and Participation. Between Demand and Imposition” (University of Konstanz)

The international conference “Media – Practices – Commoning“ welcomes contributions that critically discuss concepts like commons, commoning and conviviality by situating them within the contemporary framework of digital technology and media. In a first line of inquiry, the conference seeks to explore the art of conviviality and recent forms of togetherness while relating them to technological configurations that condition their emergence. The second panel encourages a discussion of the relationship between practices of socio-economic commoning, the logic of ‘Teilhabe’ (participation) and a cosmopolitical thinking of resistance. By tackling the infrastructural and technological conditions of commoning, the third panel will scrutinize the question of mobile commons and communities as well as the problem of institutionalized practices.
