A project of Urban Subjects in cooperation with Kunstraum of Leuphana University of Lüneburg and Leuphana Arts Program.

‘Filling the Weak Points’ investigates the possibilities for artistic production to research and represent social relations and movements. In particular we are concerned with forms of social organizing and movements which, as Marina Sitrin describes them “create the future in the present.”
Against the backdrop of a crisis in capitalism and the state that is making both the present and the future more precarious, we are looking at contemporary social movements that can be described as new forms of ‘autogestion’, or self-management (or ‘horizontalidad’ in Spanish) that have emerged under the conditions we find ourselves in.
