Not for Any*

A toolkit for exercising collective conditions for openness, access and authorship.

About the toolkit

Through this toolkit we propose to (re)turn (to) the politics of open licenses. With it, we create space for collective engagement with open licenses from a (techno)feminist perspective in a playful and embodied way.

The toolkit includes a series of exercises to do this with. The exercises are an invitation to unfold context specific understandings of open licenses and explore situated formats and imaginaries of openness, access and authorship. While staying close to the presence of our different bodies, different priviledges and different conditions, the exercises will hopefully make space for intensified engagements, playful activities and compelling conversations.




This project is initiated by Manetta Berends & Joana Chicau (both members of Varia) and is developed as part of a fellowship at the Sandberg Institute in 2020.
