Modern tribalism or the new vision of collective living

24.10.2016 | Soho House Berlin

New technologies not just enable the generation of the digital age to connect globally with like-minded people but also to re-think their social habitat and to re-create community life. Particularly the digital bohemia is not shy to re-design and re-build alternative forms of governance, collaboration, and social living.

Embracing and fostering phenomena like social media, collaborative economy, and co-working spaces, the young pioneers now experiment with concepts like co-living, co-housing, and co-owning. Across the world we see a dramatic rise in housing prices and social isolation within major cities, which makes modern urban living harder for many people, families, elderly, freelancers, and entrepreneurs.

But as work and life becomes increasingly digital the opportunity emerges for radical social transition, towards a connected global grid of local communities, which overcome distances through instantaneous real-time communication, collaboration and sharing of knowledge.

We want to understand the reason why this modern tribalism arises, how to build trusted but still open-minded communities, how to co-create places across generations, how to ensure long-term resilience, and finally … if we get closer to the Marshall McLuhan utopia of a Global Village?

Andrea Bauer discussed this and other questions with social innovation experts, like Jessy Kate Schingler (Founder, The Embassy Network), Bruno Haid (Co-Founder, roam.co), Tainá Moreno (Managing Director & Co-Producer, Agora Collective), and Christoph Fahle (Co-Founder, Betahaus), who have been exploring new formats and recipes of co-creation, co-living, and sustainable community building for many years.

Blockchain and the brave new Art World

21.07.2016 | Soho House Berlin

With the digital shift in creative production, distribution and broadcasting of culture goods and events, we see new forms of creative expression arise. How does the energy or experience of an original and virtual art work translate into the digital space? What defines a digital original and how does it find its audience? Who will be the driving and defining forces behind this paradigm shift?

When everything in the internet is free, how can creators secure their intellectual property and benefit from their talent, and on the other hand how can art lovers easily support artists of their choosing inside or outside the gallery circle? Owning a digital art work has been a challenge until recently, and the art world struggles to adopt new technologies. Also digital exhibitions and streams have not yet reached the mainstream society. But as the traditional gatekeepers of the art world change and they loose their monopolies on art interpretation and distribution, new protagonists arise and create a brave new art world.

Blockchain has already challenged the financial world with the appearance of crypto currencies, like Bitcoin or Dodgecoin, and it will enable new forms of registries, certificates and value & property management in general. Currently the most recent developments show how machine-only companies arise, and we are yet to see, how these developments will further shake the foundations of the art world.

Space Ship Earth. Who is at the steering wheel of our future?

14.03.2016 | Soho House Berlin

In a time of massive economic and cultural transition how do we re-program the institutions around us? As political leaders fail to create a sustainable future, social innovation is manifesting elsewhere. Deconstructing the world and re-building it is not the task of a political elite, but rather new visionaries who take on the global challenges together.

As misfits and outliers working on disruptive innovation – what strategies and tactics are key to getting your ideas adopted and mainstreamed? When is the right time to work within the system – and when should you spin-out? What are the risks of co-option? Understanding your stance and your theory of change is critical. Are you a reformer working on the inside of our institutions? An explorer on the edges of the current paradigm? A bohemian building a singularly new world? An activist shocking and provoking our existing systems into greater awareness? Our relationship to the system determines our identity and legacy.

As individuals our fundamental human condition is one of fallenness. We’re born into cultures that we never asked for – that we didn’t shape. Many of these cultures have pathologies and inherited command-and-control structures that are no longer relevant to the future we are trying to create. As a result, we find ourselves moving through the world as culture hackers. Frustrated by pre-existing cultures, we hack at dysfunctions, we create the possibility for new worlds. But beyond a particular project or technology, what is the culture, the way of being, the consciousness that you are infecting the world with? How do you steward that culture and embed it in the prototype you’re building?

We discussed new roles and responsibilities in the world of tomorrow wit Alexa Clay and Marek Tuszynski, two leading social innovators and entrepreneurs, who continued to challenge the present, outlined a collaborative future and inspired holistic leadership.

New Work Order. Knowledge Workers Of The World, Unite!

10.06.2015 | Soho House Berlin

The concept of work and how we define it have changed dramatically in the last two decades of the Internet and broadband development. Historically, companies created by the industrial revolution had employees that would commit their whole career and life to one company, yet now Google and Amazon report that the average tenure of an employee is 13 months, not 33 years. Modern knowledge workers are choosing flexibility over security and stability. Technology allows employees to self-educate and build knowledge. Thomas Malone of the MIT Sloan School of Management refers to this as “a new era hyper specialization”, which allows freelancers to build their own “Specialist Brand”.

Sourcing talent globally is common practice. To handle the on-demand work tasks, we seek out tools and smart technologies that effortlessly create ambient knowledge exchange between people and across teams. Thus allowing to work more effectively and efficiently. But how do companies maintain culture and foster effective collaboration when the designer is in Zurich, the engineers are in Austin and the launch is in Beijing? How do we maneuver through the myriad of apps, programs, and digital tools to create the most productive environment, stay connected with peers and manage our knowledge and expertise?

We discussed this and other questions with Cristina Riesen (General Manager Europe Evernote) and Monika Ferch (One of 30 Co-Founder of Dark Horse Innovation).

What’s the Color of Money? The myth of economics

15.11.2014 | Soho House Berlin

„Even the most sophisticated mathematical model is, de facto, a story, a parable, our effort to (rationally) grasp the world around us.“

Tomáš Sedláček

Economical models and forecasts fundamentally influence our understanding of reality. From the first shells and wooden coins to todays crypto currencies we built our trust in abstract values that define all social interactions of trade and services and determine the wealth of individuals, corporations and even nations. In Sedláček’s contemplations the invisible hand of the market is as real as the belief in god – and the extreme interpretations of both are as dangerous to the global community.

Why is gold associated with security, while Bit Coins are viewed as enablers for crime and chaos? Which stories and myths have led to our financial systems today and what opportunities lie in the digitization of currencies and payments?

With the global economic crises, we look to establish a better understanding of the mechanics of economy and flow of wealth. How can we trust in the powers to be, which have led to the unjust distribution of resources and which leave large parts of the world in despair?

How can new concepts of “sharing economy” supported trough digital platforms and crypto currencies change the balance of good and evil in economics?

Every bit counts! How Digital Activism is changing the world

21.03.2015 | Soho House Berlin

“On Spaceship Earth, there are no passengers; we are all members of the crew.”
Marshall McLuhan

Digital innovation has strengthened existing networks and has enabled new ones to develop. Through digital tools people are communicating, creating strategies and projects for social change. The internet and in some parts of the world particularly mobile internet has brought together people to tackle social challenges together. From fighting corruption or finding lost children to raising awareness for illnesses and catastrophes around the world. Equipped with the right tools and an appropriate understanding individuals and groups of likeminded people can as easily apply agenda setting as NGOs and lobbyists. Even fundraising and organizing volunteers can be managed digitally. Starting a grassroots campaign, organizing knowledge through crowdsourcing or securing financing through crowdfunding is just a click away.

How can these innovations drive social change on the local and global level and how do theses digital efforts translate into actual impact? Which media channels are defining our perception of reality and who are the new thought leaders?

We discussed current developments in digital Innovation for social change with activist Raúl Aguayo-Krauthausen and digital communications expert Geraldine de Bastion.
