Activist Urbanism for a Solidary City

Monday, 23.05.2022, 19:00
W23, Wipplingerstraße 23, 1010 Wien

How can we imagine and construct a solidary city, a city against the state, a soft city? How can an activist urbanism re-create the city as a space of multiplicity, of refuge, respite, reproduction, arrival, gathering?

These questions will be discussed on the base of two books recently published by transversal texts: Die sanfte Stadt (“Soft City”) by Kike España and Die Stadt als Stätte der Solidarität (“The City as a Site of Solidarity”), edited by Niki Kubaczek and Monika Mokre.

Event in English

With Kike España, Niki Kubaczek, and Monika Mokre

The presentations/discussions will be continued in München (26.05.) - Augsburg (27.05.) - Köln (28.05.) - Stuttgart (31.05.) - Berlin (01.06.) - Hamburg (03.06.) - https://transversal.at/blog/activist-urbanism-for-a-solidary-city


Social Struggles in Spain

Wednesday, 25.05.2022, 16:00 – 21:00
Depot, Breite Gasse 3, 1070 Vienna

On May 15, 2011 hundreds of thousands of people began occupying the central plazas of cities across Spain, developing new forms of sociality and politics. A decade after the transnational occupation movements transversal texts published a series of three books, that take the Spanish 15M movement as a point of departure for far-reaching theoretical and political thinking. From three cities—Madrid, Málaga, and Barcelona—and from three theoretical viewpoints—political philosophy, activist urbanism, and a feminist perspective on municipalism and care—an imaginary of contemporary struggles emerges that extends far beyond the social and political practices of Spain in the 2010s.

In the first part of the event, these three books will be presented individually and put up for discussion; the following evening panel will discuss the most recent developments in Spain's social movements, from the municipalist movements to feminist activism and to current anti-war positions.
