Growing together with others: an interview with Ela Kagel of SuperMarkt

In this conversation Ela Kagel describes how the collectively-run project SUPERMARKT emerged and developed over the last years. Based in Berlin, the aim of the project is to provide a space in which a curated program goes along with the self-organized work of local and international initiatives. Putting a thematic emphasis on open source technologies, collaborative practices, and alternative economies, the notion of the commons plays a central role for SUPERMARKT. It allows for connecting a critical approach to digital culture with aspects of governance and economic development. The diverse program is considered to be an on-going experiment for the translation of global and theoretical issues into daily community practice – and vice versa.
