The commons have become the most exciting space for the critique of capitalism and a scalable social practice. No longer limited to an avantgarde, the commons could take our societies beyond the constraints of markets and states – as Yochai Benkler and Michel Bauwens observed at the “Un|Commons” conference. In a talk moderated by Max Haiven those two influential thinkers and practioners of the commons look back at experiences from the past 20 years and present outlooks for what we are able to change at the macro level if we continue to struggle for the commons. The session was recorded on October 25, 2015 at the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz, and you can listen to it by pressing the play button above.
