School of Commons (SoC) is a community-based initiative dedicated to the study and development of decentered knowledge. SoC promotes a broad, integrative understanding of knowledge, we focus on matters of organization surrounding the production and mediation of knowledge. The content and position of SoC is defined by our community rather than a predetermined program. Research is conducted in our three labs (LEARN, MAPP, and READ), all of which are run as peer-based collaborative endeavours with annually changing members. Our labs bring together a wide range of participants, guests, and contributors who share their curiosity, skills, and visions. We offer personal support, financial resources, and an active community of peers and experts engaged in a wide range of topics.
We are located at the Zürich University of the Arts in Switzerland.
