Silke Helfrich will introduce the first Pattern Language of Commoning (PLC) as a powerful tool for analyzing and designing commons. The PLC is comprised of 33 patterns organized according to their cultural, organizational, and economic dimensions. Participants will learn about the patterns methodology, which is based on a relational and processual understanding of the world.
Special attention will be paid to the concept of “relationalized property” that recognizes dynamic forms of governance of shared wealth which the prevailing epistemology of property law cannot apprehend. Some concrete forms of “relationalized property” – matsutake commoning in Japan and the Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn, New York – will be discussed. Since “relationalized property” unfolds its potential only with other patterns, participants will learn to navigate the pattern-network that describes key features of commoning in different cultural contexts.
