Todo por la praxis: TAZ

The project by the Spanish collective Todo por la Praxis breathes new life into a public space which has been abandoned as such within the heart of the city of Luxembourg.

The Archive TAZ is an observatory that collects experiences of citizen organization car spaces: urban gardens, community centers, or autonomous cultural spaces as a testing ground for a new urban self.
In it, about 50 bottom up initiatives and tactical planning in different cities in Europe and Latin America are collected.

The intention is to create a directory of spaces that allows a synthetic reading information of each, so we can extract the relevant elements to understand and comprehend these initiatives through an initiatory perspective. In this way, we can consider Archivo TAZ as a guide for the implementation of projects based on experiences already made, or as a platform that lets you connect with them.

This device is structured as a space where TAZ Archive is physically hosted, being a repository that lets you check the information that exists online through an analog medium. Yet the TAZ office intends to go beyond passing from one format to another.

The office is intended as a temporary autonomous space wherever it is located. For this, it raises an infrastructure related to the practices and contents of the references included in the archive. This device enables the assemblies or citizen parliaments, enables workspaces to develop collaborative construction workshops, and it creates an open cultural infrastructure and establishes mechanisms to generate community gardens. Ultimately, it allows creating a temporary experience which allows, on the one hand, being a tool of direct communication at street level, and secondly, being a catalyst that enables connections with local communities for their involvement and inclusion in the Archive TAZ.
The project is developed in the context of the 2015 call for residencies promoted by the Casino Luxembourg Forum d’art Contemporain , for interventions in public space. This intervention is located in a square that is at the intersection of Boulevard de la Pétrusse and Passerelle / Viaduc.
