*Collecting Momentum is the activation of space through the possibility of interactions and the emergence of reciprocal influences by bringing collective experience, imaginaries and visionaries together while avoiding the rhetorics and boundaries of conventional curation.
Co-Mo is experimentation through collective observation and reflection on different forms of interaction between the habitus and habitat. It further aims to develop collective habits in terms of communication, cooperation, collaboration, and conceptualization by documenting these encounters to be processed in diverse mediums.
Co-Mo focuses on common experiences rather than geographies or backgrounds in specific and offers a space of interaction to re-exist in already existing places.
Co-Mo* is a co-operation by Kopuntu Network and Officina Neukölln, intends to pop-up irregularly in different forms and mediums and open for collaborative ideas.
