The workshop was initially developed for the Neighborhood Academy program of 2016, which focused on forms of collective learning. It took place with the participation of various grassroots initiatives and affinity groups operating with Berlin, connected by the fight for the right to the city, and strategies for reclaiming. The Reclaiming Workshop took place in “Die Laube,” a three-story experimental “treehouse” providing a space for self-organized, community-oriented and future-oriented learning, located in the Prinzessinnengarten, a community garden located around Moritzplatz, Kreuzberg. We officially launched the event by hanging protest banners used by each of the participating groups on the façade of “Die Laube,” thereby designating it as a space for collective learning.
