Berlin Farm Lab


Next month Yurt Empire Ambassadors Tessa & Sumu will be spending a week in Berlin as residents of this excellent new project by Berlin Farmlab artist Valentina Karga. The ‘Summer School for Applied Autonomy’ is: “a research initiative interested in capturing the complexity of the technical know-how but also the mental state and the social skills one needs for self-sufficiency. Exploration of thematic fields such as self-reliance, open source knowledge, collaboration and self-reflection is at the very base of this project.” Residents live in a purpose-built tiny house with a range of experimental technologies for one or two weeks, their days structured via tasks andlessons, and transfer their knowledge to the next group at the end of their stay.
