Conference for Practical Criticism

Conference for Practical Critique

The world is in a state of upheaval. No one can say whether the destructive conditions of the present will continue, whether they will even get worse, or whether we will experience changes towards a different, a better world.

Last year's conference tried to strengthen utopian thinking. Now we have to investigate the strategies of transformation - understood as a transition to a radically different way of life and production - needed to find "a way out". After exploring the concept of transformation, we will discuss these strategies within the key social areas (mobility, economy, (care) work). This debate is inevitably linked to the question of who the actors of this socio-ecological transformation are and what transformational alliances are needed.
