Public spaces have been contested throughout the history of New York. Now hundreds of activists are camped out in the heart of the Financial District. What are the written and unwritten rules that govern how we use public spaces? How have they changed over time? What happens when activists contest those rules? Join us on a tour from the BMW Guggenheim Lab to the Financial District, where we will interview occupation participants and consider the past, present, and future of the commons.
