Open – Closed

This publication is part of the work in public space Open – Closed [Link], and was displayed in different locations throughout Amsterdam North.
For this silkscreened publication people on the squares of North Amsterdam gave their interpretation of the new policy jargon of the so-called ‘Participation Society’. It all sounds vaguely familiar, but what does it mean, exactly? On the reverse side philosopher Aetzel Griffioen introduces his take on the commons and the role of participation.
