Welcome to an open evening talk with Ana Džokić and Marc Neelen of STEALTH.unlimited on commoning, the project City in the Making and three scenarios on the future by 2024.

As co-initiators of City in the Making in Rotterdam, STEALTH have since 2014 engaged in bringing a fraction of "toxic” remainders of the public housing stock (back) to forms of common use, as a site to produce new instances of economic and cultural reality. What started from two abandoned buildings, meanwhile has grown to a network of seven buildings at their disposal for limited time. They form a starting ground towards the much larger potential of (re-) commoning urban resources for collective benefit, to arrive at a horizon of long-term socially and economically sustainable life, possibly including an internal Basic Income. In the talk they will discuss what the future might look by 2024 - the year when the contract for the first building will run out.

STEALTH.unlimited (Rotterdam/Belgrade) is the spatial practice of Ana Džokić and Marc Neelen. Their initial interest in the ‘stealth’ urban processes manifested itself in a series of research and mapping projects. Following a number of curatorial involvements that explored and exposed collective citizen capacity to confront the neoliberal enclosure and financialisation of space, around 2012 in Belgrade and Rotterdam they co-initiated long-term engagements to deal with the spatiality of production and (social) reproduction, particularly in the domain of housing.

The Only Clients Will be Our Lives is presented as a part of the Konstfack course SITES AND SITUATIONS. It is developed and presented as a collaboration with the Royal Institute of Art’s course RESEARCH-LAB: Architecture, Urban Artefacts, Collective Representation and BOMASSAN.
