Public Seminar - Resist and Occupy

In 2012, refugees established widely visible protestcamps in the Sigmund Freud Park and later in the Votivkirche in Vienna, as well as on Oranienplatz and in the Gerhard-Hauptmann-School in Berlin. In the city center of Athens, the formerly vacant Hotel City Plaza was occupied in 2016 by refugees and activists. Since then, Hotel City Plaza reveals how decent living and arrival structures can be self-organized. The hotel offers shelter and a home for 400 people, who cope with daily life on the basis of mutual solidarity and donations. Their demands and actions are part of a broad urban social movement. Their fight for the "right to the city" (Henri Lefebvre) produces new forms of action for a future, post-Babylonian urban society - and far beyond.
