“Adhocracy: Making the commons in a World full of Objects” 

Adhocracy is a philosophy of action characterized by creative, flexible, purposeful attitude. Rather than big factories and the bureaucracy that the system has built to control itself, ad-hoc processes allow people to get rid of market stereotyping and challenge the rules of capitalist consumerism.

Adhocracy not only reveal the current alternative ways of production process and the social-economic realities of design but aim to share concrete results and methodologies, realms of thinking and critical understanding of design, labor, production, and education.
