"The exhibition "Platforms for Civil Resistance", hosted by DeSERVICEGARAGE, is the first stage of an ongoing project in which different dilemmas concerning 'the protester', public space and power will be questioned and criticized. By proposing 5 architectural structures, new gestures are given to various forms of civil resistance. The monumental architecture, designed with the idea of a park landscape, can exist as permanent objects that facilitate the continuous development of pluralistic ideologies to ‘organization'.
New questions arise. What is the need to structure and institutionalize civil resistance, will this lead to liberalization or restrictions? When a specific location is appropriate and designated as the ‘ultimate protest place’, what happens to the urge to protest? And will the protester benefit the aestheticization of his appearance? These and other questions will be discussed in the debate on 15 July. A closing event of the exhibition where various speakers in the fields of activism, art, architecture and politics will be invited."
Update: An extension of the project will take place at the Haarlemmermeerpolder during 'Open City', July / September 2013. Commissioned by Kunstfort Vijfhuizen, curated by Alice Smits.
