This text, by the Pulska Grupa group of activists, describes the socio-political and community conditions in Pola on the Adriactic coast of Croatia. Its objective is to grasp specific local transformations in a very broad geo-political context. The temporary reuse methods and projects initiated by associations, artists, architects and activists in some of the abandoned spaces in the huge military naval arsenal, such as the Casoni Vecchi fort, the Karlo Rojc barracks, the former sheds, the military warehouses and the buildings on the Katarina-Monumenti Island area are exemplary of a new model for the self-management of space, the ‘komunal’. Those of the Pulska Grupa use this term from Istrian dialect to mean ‘common land’, belonging to the commons, not governed by the state and given to the community as land for experimenting with local activities, dreams and desires.

Keywords: Autonomous occupation; temporary use; postcapitalist city
