What new functions and what new challenges should a public cultural institution take on in the Internet Age? In what way can we think of forms of organization, designs for space, and production and research practices that use and complement the dynamics developed on the Web? What topics related to the functioning and evolution of Internet practices can we submit to critical reflection, to learn from and act on? [live streaming]

In its trajectory, Medialab-Prado has sought responses to these matters through  reflection and practices, and in order to explore them further, we propose a set of small laboratories for experimenting with and thinking about various topics related to the Internet: a series of interrelated spaces that also serve as dissemination spaces and generate an infrastructure that facilitates the production of other projects –their software, their licences, their forms of organization, etc.- all from a standpoint of the commons. 

To start getting this process underway, MLP invited a group of people and initiatives to contribute their perspectives on the Internet as seen from the various areas where they carry out their practices, and to imagine how these ideas could be materialized in the physical space and programme of a citizens’ digital culture laboratory. The various approaches will be shared during these sessions.
