The discourse around “public institutions” is often limited to questions of access, transparency, and accountability. Who Owns It? is a series that builds on current debates that shift towards users as active participants with the agency to change institutions. How do people build a sense of ownership or community around a common aspiration? What unites a seed collector and museum curator, or a refugee camp and an impermanent shrine? Through public talks and commissioned essays, AAA asks artists, architects, farmers, and scholars to reflect on users that produce, collect, build, and destroy.
