New proposal at Hangar X
Why do we need this manifesto?The city is a complex web of power structures from which some benefit structurally and others are discriminated against. To be aware of those structures and understand how each actor and role (including ourselves, our friends, our family) is embedded in them is important, to become able to share power and become empowered. More and new intersectional and anti-capitalistic spaces are needed that make an effort to be really inclusive for everyone or provide a safe(r) space, that always stay places "in the making" and become platforms for exchange and skill sharing. It needs new creative and less academic invitations of urban involvement, inclusive accesses to free spaces where self-organization can be learned and definitely more diverse and aware structures on every level to ensure that the city we are co-creating is for everyone. Society needs to unlearn and undo the colonial, imperial, and capitalist structures that form the metrics of success, love, and connection in this city and beyond. Hangar X is aiming to be a space that is not up for commodification but gives multiple platforms for exchange and interaction between many. Hangar X is not a platform for people who advocate racism, anti-semitism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia or any form of bullying, violence and discrimination against other people. This manifesto is to be developed further and translated into more languages.
