What is produced in the process beyond the community and the social? And what material and discursive results are created by participatory practices and artworks? Magda Tyżlik-Carver looks at Yoko Ono’s Cut Pieces and at the social sphere of social media to consider what aesthetics of common/s might be in a post-participatory age.
Posthuman Common/s. An Interview with Magda Tyżlik-Carver

Magda Tyżlik-Carver talks about her research on commons and curating as posthuman subjects. While building on the three-part definition of the commons consisting of resources, a community and the process of commoning, she suggests, at the same time, to rethink and shift these categories. This shift brings posthuman agents such as machines, algorithms or language into the commoning processes while also recognising that commons has always already been posthuman.
