Property, Protest, Commons Lexicon







The Working Lexicon serves as a speculative record of Property, Protest, Commons, and the Alternative Economies of Art a series of public workshops in Hong Kong, and a forum and screening programme in Taipei, which involved artists, filmmakers, curators, architects, and writers engaged in alternative production and dissemination models based on generosity and sharing. Envisioned as a collaborative endeavour exploring how to enrich the public realm and actively produce the commons, participants uncover the role property plays in the rapid globalisation of Asia and its consequences for public culture.

The workshops served as a process of research leading to a collectively generated publication Made in Public, a collaboration between AAA resident artist Marysia Lewandowska and curator Esther Lu. The project responds to the process of privatisation influencing daily life, and attempts to make connections between isolated practices to contribute to imagining a shared future.
