From Discussion and Chaos Days 2018

Between the 10th and 13th of Mai the Chaos- and Discussiondays are taking place in Berlin. Quite a few things are already being planned. Until now there has been an open Meeting for the preparation taking place in Fischladen, Rigaerstrasse 83 every Wednesday at 6pm.

Do you situate yourself within a role by volunteering for a collectively determined or constructed position, or by accepting a delegated role at the request of another or the group—both cooperative efforts? Have you felt stronger lines of cooperation that teetered into the realm of collaboration?
