Performing the common - Föreställningar om det gemensamma

Karin Hansson

PERFORMING THE COMMON documents an artistic research project about public spaces, private networks and the art of organizing collective meaning.
The privatization of public space has changed the common. New common room has been created within the private sphere. When is the public the common? Where do you go when you want to talk to The Others? Performing the Comman explores the manifestations of the public sphere in town squares, in stairways and under TV sofas. ­
The project was developed 2010-2012 by the Department of Computer and System Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University and The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, supported by Formas and in collaboration with Association for Temporary Art, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the Romanian Cultural Institute, Centrum för gestaltning, Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, Husby Gård and Moderna Museet.
