For the exhibition at KunstlerHaus Bremen, De Geuzen brought together a collection of ‘Do It Yourself’ projects focussing on tactics of claiming space and strategies for demanding place. Through manuals, posters, patterns, online references and other printed matter, a variety of Geuzen skills converged in an open source form. The exhibition operated on two fronts. The KunstlerHaus Bremen was a kind of working laboratory where De Geuzen D.I.Y. projects could be realized by the public directly on location and other DIY activities were made available online for at home testing. Some projects featured in the D.I.Y. series are the Temporary Archive of Shared Interests, Proposal for Sending Analog Messages in a Wired World, D.I.Y. Geuzennaam and Geuzen Uniform Pattern .
