About heterotopies, collective work and the usage of waterscapes. Das Archipel is an open platform for self-organization. It consists of islands that float on the waters of Hamburg. Its function and meaning is informed through a communal process. Since its inception in 2015, and the organization of an open collective, numerous events and activities have shaped Das Archipel into a social space. Today, it can be seen as a playground and a manifestation of the community around which it is formed. On a small scale it is an experimental field for a redirective practice, with aims of forming collective action to reimagine our social and political fabric. Das Archipel was initiated in 2015 by Finn Brüggemann, Amalia Ruiz-Larrea and Nuriye Tohermes.
