“Appropriate, Subvert, Activate!”

“”Appropriate, Subvert, Activate!” is a project (by UNSTABLE) that identifies the limitations of urban public space, which has not only been restricted in physical terms but also in terms of self-autonomy and spontaneous social manifestation. This illicit intervention is a call for action that seeks to create and encourage moments of antagonism—however transitory, fragmentary and ephemeral—in which the public connect through conflict, in an attempt to reclaim the “public” status of a so-called public space that that has for long been dominated by private forces. The intention is to question the spatial politics inherent in urban public space, revealing the hidden conflicts and oppressive mechanisms of control that prevent it from being a truly democratic space.”
