Convention on the Use of Space

with Adelita Husni-Bey and various radical housing groups from London 

4 to 7 pm

 

In our 3 hour session, after short introductions from keynote participants / speakers, we will take a close look at the Convention on the Use of Space. The ‘Convention on the Use of Space’ is a legal instrument publicly drafted between March and May 2015 through IRL meetings in the Netherlands as a response to the housing crisis: the lack of affordable homes, absence of provisions for those without legal right to stay, rising rents, and the criminalisation of squatting. In reading the document we will analyse what the convention’s claims are and how it could be used / adapted to a UK context. To do this, we will use a seminar format, where we will collectively read the document and propose amendments and notes which will go towards a future UK version of the convention to be produced in 2017/2018. This event is for you if you’re interested in 'movement-perspective legislation', commoning and grassroot organising!

Adelita Husni-Bey is an artist whose practice involves the analysis and counter-representation of hegemonic ideologies in contemporary Western societies. Recent projects also focus on rethinking radical pedagogical models within the framework of anarcho-collectivist studies. She has shown and collaborated with a number of institutions such as: Caso (2015); Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid (2014); Maxxi Museum, Rome (2014); Gasworks, London (2012); and NBK, Berlin (2013). She completed the Whitney Independent Study Program, New York in 2012 and was an artist-in-residence at Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco in the fall of 2015.
