The project Jederland engages with the issues of property and possession and how the resulting power structures shape the way we live together. Jederland’s objective is to free a piece of land from its status of possession in order to withdraw it from the dynamics of power it is usually subjected to. We want to create a vacuum in the urban fabric in which rigid conventions and systems are suspended, a space of imagination where new modes of living together can be developed. The land, physically located in the urban space of Bolzano, should on the one hand prompt a questioning of the limits of current property laws, and on the other hand represents a lever for a broad discussion on property, possession, community and common goods. Considering the ever-present territorial conflicts, our willingness to rethink these concepts is taking on a crucial role.
