KOBA Shoptalk #4: public/private


As owners and users of various public/private shopfront spaces – how do we treat these spaces in terms of our own public/private behaviour? Is running a local shop like extending your living room out into the street? Do the public become like extended family? What are the joys and challenges of creating such familiar atmospheres and working in these settings?

Speakers: the locals, the shop owner, the community center, the theorist, the experiment and you

We are KOBAKANT and our motivation to host this discussion in our public/private shop space is to reflect on the role of our KOBA art project/tailor shop as part of a local community. We use our shopfront setting to make our craft accessible to people at street level. Anybody can peer through our windows to observe us at work tailoring circuits for custom commissions. Our prices are low, to make our offer affordable. We’re not in the business of making money, rather of imagining an alternative way of creating technology.

Was sind die Freuden und Herausforderungen beim Aufbauen und Betreiben solcher familiären Atmosphären?

Sprecher: die Nachbarn, die LadenbesitzerInnen, das Interkulturelle Netzwerk, die TheoretikerInnen, das Experiment und du
