Planning notes As discussed with Mona, C. and others, we are planning to use the Foyers D-G for our exhibition and workshop space. Furthermore, we will also support the "Dark Room" with technical construction and material acquisition.

We hacked the city with art.

In 2009 we made a huge exhibition in some empty buildings that a developer wanted to demolish, and we never left. We forced the government to buy back the historical buildings from a shady investor. We believe that access to culture should never be based upon education, status or wealth. We work to improve our community without being paid.

Today there are over 150 activists keeping our little autonomous village alive and kicking.


At this year's Conference (our first official participation) we can be found in Foyer D-G. Here is a brief list of what we're bringing:

  • art exhibition (with prosecco reception to meet the artists on Saturday the 28th at 6pm)
  • non-stop code (poetry) slam over the eventphone
  • Green Fields on Tour
  • a silkscreen studio
  • stickers, books and minimalist anarchy

At our physical off-site location in the Valentinskamp we will have another parallel exhibition, and on the 29th a bacchanalian event with lots of music and a never-ending keg of rum. (Yes, we have pre-ordered enough Club Maté)
