KOSMICA presents this roundtable to discuss how does coloniality affect the conditions of the commons. It will address the questions including: Can commons actually exist while the world and the cosmos are regulated to the constraints of colonialism and capitalism? How space industries have mutated and controlled our perception of the future and therefore time itself. Is it a violent act to label places and spaces as commons? What are the new manifestos needed to decentralize space discourses about the relationship between humans and celestial bodies? This roundtable seeks to provoke but also to inspire new ideas to discuss about the universe with both boredom and fun.
