How can we have collective action in the age of extreme polarization, isolation, dehumanization and dystopian imagination? What can we build from the ashes of the Arab Spring, the Indignados movement and Occupy Wall Street? A relentless organizer, Astra Taylor knows the perfect social movement simply doesn’t exist, but in a series of legendary attempts to improve the existing ones she has become one of the essential chroniclers of contemporary acts of collective resistance. Ever since publishing Occupy!, a “semi-regular, forty-page tabloid newspaper inspired by the Occupy movement”, she has been engaged in a lifelong debate about the nature of community-driven power, pushing its limits and analyzing its discontents. We will look at the promises of human alliances against the invisible powers of technocratic regimes.
