This book is a result of a two-year research project “Spaces of Commoning: Artistic Practices, the Making of Urban Commons and Visions of Change” ( Its participants are artists and theoreticians from the Academy of Art in Vienna. The texts assembled in this book are a sincere attempt to document the trials and errors in a study of commoning, a series of disruptions, failures, of falling apart, and the search for means to come together again. With this in mind, many of the contributions here do confront questions of methodology: they reflect on methods that support the study as well as the practice of commoning, methods that cherish critical reexamination and allow for unresolved dilemmas. As such, this search is part of the much wider methodological crises that continues to shake Western sciences, arts, and architecture, raising disturbing questions on research ethos, accountability, and the entanglement of power/knowledge regimes.
