Daniel García Andújar, Listen To The People‘s Wrath
In English Language

Based on the „anti-anti-riot-kit“ which Daniel García Andújar produced for the exhibition at Württembergischer Kunstverein , this workshop understands itself as an open offer to explore analogue and digital techniques of protest, both in theory and practice. Protest forms that use the street as stage are of main interest here.

The basic tools of the workshop are a conversed ant-riot-gear, stencils, t-shirts, flags etc. The latter carry among other things the slogan “Let’s Democratize Democracy”. Further tools are mechanical movable types, a so called “action camera”, and a digital archive with materials from the fields of riot, anti-riot, and anti-anti-riot.

The workshop aims to develop horizontal and collective ways of working as well as a productive and at the same time (self)critical analysis of the forms and formats of protest: their performativity, choreographies and role allocations. Present, past as well as upcoming protests and protest movements can serve here as references.

Behind the background of the slogan “Let’s Democratize Democracy” the workshop intends to discuss structures of democracy, participation and social transformation processes. Of main interest here are those conflicts and difficulties which are inherent to democracy: its fragility, its requirements and our expectations.
