What forms of autonomous infrastructure (e.g., in some refugee camps, common kitchens) can become processes, tools, methodologies, strategies for decolonizing? How can we share and explore meanings and understandings of the current lived realities of “hospitality”? How can radical praxis allow for hospitality to become unconditional?
BAK 2017–2018 Fellows Pelin Tan as well as Isshaq Al-Barbary and Diego Segatto of Campus in Camps engage in a discussion that relates to our current times of nomadic dwelling and to living conditions in cities and contested territories capable of sustaining decolonized infrastructure.
