KUNCI Cultural Studies Center inhabits a precarious position of neither belonging to existing disciplinary boundaries while simultaneously aiming at expanding them. The collective’s membership is open and voluntary, and is so far based on an affinity to creative experimentation and speculative inquiry, with a focus on intersections between theory and practice.

Made in Commons is a series of experiments on commons as categories in the making, by ways of doing things together and exploring what we have in common. The project aims to explore the productive aspect of commons in the local context and to investigate, through several case studies, transnational history relations which influence and shape commons based practices.
