Land is a longterm project in a rural area in Germany. It questions the concept of private property and explores the possibility of de-privatising a 30.000 sq m piece of Land and turning it into a Commons (collective property).
The Land belongs to my family, it includes forest, fields and is located close to a small farmer village in the Eifel area.
At the moment the project is in preparation phase, we are looking for funding possibilities, researching the legal policies of collectivisation and looking for collaborators.
The aim of the project is to invite various people from the local communities and from abroad to form an assembly and to together explore the potential of Land as a Commons.
