Tesla, Klosterstraße 68-70, Berlin
Workshop Organised by Cornelia Sollfrank and Nicolas Malevé
Printing Party by Harrisson & Pierre Huyghbaert

FREEdom and OPENness – anything but marketing and ideology? Sharing, really? Culture from and for the Commons. One day before WOS4, an international group of artists, programmers and theoreticians will meet for a concentrated exchange of experiences within a workshop situation.
The programme of the day includes a general discussion about terminology, it will address questions of authorship, it offers the possibility for knowledge transfer in a section about free tools for artistic and cultural production and discusses their meaning for the quality of an artwork and it tries to evaluate the practice of applying open licences to works of art.
The meeting will be concluded by demonstrating a new model of open publishing (print on demand) as well as the use of free tools in design and publishing during the final “Printing Party.”
