This movement was triggered by increased housing shortage while entire streets of apartments were being evicted, ultimately leading to their de- cay. The fall of the Berlin Wall in the beginning of the 1990s was followed by a second squatting wave which led to the formation of many self-governed cultural spaces in

» every movement is possible« Spatial Composition in Iannis Xenakis’s Hibiki-Hana-Ma RALPH PALAND Iannis Xenakis regarded music not only as a temporal art, but also as a spa- tial one, and he declared that sound displacement was »part of our perception of the world, our universe, and space must be integrated into sound struc- tures«1. Space had a prominent role in his theoretical writings, in his archi- tectural works and, of course, in his instrumental and electroacoustic compo- sitions. With regard to the implementation of sonic spatiality

JULIA WALTER-HERRMANN FABLABS – A GLOBAL SOCIAL MOVEMENT? Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has1. Margaret Mead 1. INTRODUCTION Hardly any debate understands FabLabs only as a “collection of commercially available machines and parts lined by software and processes [...] developed for making things” (Gershenfeld 2005, p. 12) that is assembled in small-scale workshops; most of the currently growing number of texts, presentations and websites about FabLabs also

Instructions for building a pan-European movement Interview with Pia Eberhardt, Corporate Europe Observatory1 The negotiations on the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Commission and the US government led to massive protests both in the US and in Europe over the last few years.
