notes from mtg via site


just copy and pasting it all here so i can add comments.. also.. in this new wordpress format.. can’t figure out how to get it into quote mode.. unless i copy and past each paragraph/line.. so will just put words/quotes from link in yellow

We decided last week to make the Museum of Care (and Freedom) as a distributed network of residencies (anti-institutions, open to everyone, not only to the people from Academia or the Art World)

  • We have many questions:
    • The rules and agreements? Between residents and those offering space
    • The structure of the foundation (or anti-institution)
    • What could be the creative ways of fundraising that would prevent us from turning into one more power broker in the institutional market
    • How to build our structure, our solidarity network? Should we use a wiki model? How should we avoid the mistakes of Wiki, Diaspora and other alternative networks?

We concluded that it makes sense to create six working groups, which will report to the open assembly.’

perpetuating tragedy of the non common.. need to start as if already free.. not shackled in meetings.. which means what you need is 1\ people/time and spaces of permission .. with nothing to prove and 2\ a deep enough infra to facil the chaos of legit free people

The groups are:

  • Infrastructure group:
    • For now, mostly we are – website development team, but later we will need accountant and lawyers in this group

infra: 2 conversations .. as infra

  • Fundraising:
    • We are looking for people interested in developing alternative ideas of how money could work (for example, cryptocurrencies), as well as people who understand traditional ways of drawing and distributing resources.

try/code money (any form of measuring/accounting) as the planned obsolescence w/ubi as temp placebo.. needs met w/o money.. till people forget about measuring.. otherwise tragedy of the non common; 10-day-care-center\ness; et al

ie: short bp

  • Press team:
    • We need to speak to the public. How?

ie: graeber model law

people’s souls are ready.. just need to see a legit alt they can leap to

  • Residences and laws:
    • We want to invite those who already have experience in creating residencies, as well as people who would like to learn how to do it, but we are also looking for creating a legal team. We will need help to organize the relationship between our future residents and the people/institutions that provide them with Freedom and Care.
    • We want to ensure the proper functioning of the project, as well as invent new laws to avoid bureaucratization but to keep it safe.

bullet 1\ has to be one org/infra for all of us from the get go or it won’t work

bullet 2\ gershenfeld something else law et al

  • Visual Assembly group (you can read about it here: v-a.city):
    • This is David Graeber and Nika Dubrovsky project (City of Care/Care Unite), which was supposed to happen in Graz on October 11, 2020. We are planning to hold it next year in a residences network, which will appear during the year October 11, 2021.

resonates w city sketchup ness – visual assembly

  • Reading group:
    • We are looking to join one of the existing groups that invite us or create our own.

we need to let go of study/reading.. whatever.. and trust what’s already in 8b hearts/souls..

that means all we need is an infra/org for that full on freedom

lit & num as colonialism/enclosure et al
