FabLabs are one of the key empirical fields of my PhD research. They do not only make digital fabrication publicly accessible but open the possibilities for more distributed and equal technosocial arrangements in profound ways. The research on FabLabs led me to initiate and co-found FabLab Karlsruhe e.V. In times of change like these ‘action research’ is back again, collaboration shouldn’t stop at the doors to universities.
I am currently publishing my whole PhD thesis. In case you want to have access to this working paper please get in contact with me.
