Call for Visual Contributions: Anthology // Occupy Amsterdam

A group of artists, writers & activists is currently writing an Anthology of ideas, tactics, & concepts, inspired by our experience at Occupy Amsterdam. One goal of this anthology is to offer proposals, visions and reflections. We want to investigate the elements of the political visions that functioned within Occupy, in terms of aims, strategies, analysis as well as tactics – so that the Occupy experience can help to nourish future forms of activism. How can Occupy be extended – beyond the camp, into the future, into the rest of the city, the country, the world?

The anthology will have an open form that will include texts of many different kinds and authors addressing a great variety of subjects. In order to accommodate this, we have chosen to organize the anthology into 99 lemmas, like an encyclopedia. An entry could be any kind of text, from short definitions to complete essays, from histories to images.

We are still interested in expanding our range of contributors, in particular we are looking for visual contributions of various kinds – illustrations, autonomous works, visuals inspired by Occupy, for graphic novels, archive material, photographs, drawings, cartoons, posters, flyers…. We would be happy to receive your contribution!

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
