Manifesto of the Third Landscape

‘Manifesto of the Third Landscape’ by Gilles Clément was originally published in 2004 in French and is one of the key text in the modern landscape design that advocates to create from landscape opposed to design against it. This groundbreaking text introduces a new term ‘third landscape’ – a third state of being, exisiting on the margins, untouched spaces that remain in their natural state, such as summits, deserts, etc.

This text is vital for understanding how abandoned places can have “a second life” and what potential they hold opposed to cultivated spaces where human intervene.

We are very excited to be publishing the first English version of this text translated by Michele Bee from our member centre Manifatture Knos and Raphaël Fèvre.

Sustainability, Value and Advocacy for the Grassroots Cultural Sector

  • Arts & Culture
  • Policy & Advocacy
  • Produced by TEH

In this publication, we would like to tell the story of the experience of grassroots cultural centres in Europe during the Covid-19 pandemic. At the very start of the pandemic, TEH Coordination Office launched ‘Mission Impossible’ – a so it seemed at the time – to support our members throughout this crisis and come out stronger, more resilient and prepared! We decided the best way to go is to get to know our members better so we launched a survey and get on the phone to talk to as many of them as possible. As a result, we collected priceless data and insights into the situation of our members during the pandemic, their thoughts on current cultural policies and sector’s sustainability and impact. Not to be missed!!!!

Long Live Equivocal Spaces

  • Arts & Culture
  • Cities & Communities
  • Produced by TEH

Together with our long-term partner Michele Bee – co-founder of Manifatture Knos – we started a series of publications dedicted to commoning practices. This publication written by Paul Citron explores the notion of ‘Equivocal Spaces’ – spaces described by their fleeting nature. They embody different uses and are often citizen-driven and citizen-initiated, arising from their current needs. Equivocal spaces are never fully complete but evolve with time and live in present. They are radically occupied spaces; self-made or shared livings; cultural centres opened up in their neighbourhoods, and much more. Read the full publication to learn more and get inspired!
