The “Network for an Alternative Quest” invites people to the conference “Challenging Capitalist Modernity IV: We want our world back — Resist, Reclaim and Rebuild” in Hamburg.
The “Network for an Alternative Quest” will hold its fourth “Challenging Capitalist Modernity” conference over the Easter weekend in Hamburg. The motto is “We want our world back! Resist, Reclaim and Rebuild!”, the main themes of the conference are “Autonomous Education and Organizing”.
“Our world has never seen such a pace of destruction”
The organizers said presenting the conference that “our world has never before seen such a rate of destruction. In the last hundred years, not only are different languages and cultures dying off, but every day numerous plants and animals become extinct.
Capitalist modernity and its source, patriarchy, have brought us not only to the brink of the destruction of human society as we know it but also of our world. However, it is not all hopeless, if we take a collective stance, we may come out of the chaos with a better civilization — democratic civilization — but only if we do something about it now. We do not need to search for another world elsewhere; we want our world back!”
Network for an Alternative Quest adds that at this fourth conference “we will continue to focus on the critique of capitalist modernity, but our discussions have shown us that it is more important than ever to discuss alternatives, organize and educate ourselves. Thus, the main theme of this year’s conference will focus on rebuilding: Arts, Education, and building Democratic Confederalism.”
The organizers add: “We would like to give substantial time to possible solutions and alternatives. This year we will continue with the traditions of “Call for Papers” and “Call for Workshops”. There will be a call for both on the website. There will also be a call for interpreters, as the conference will once again be multilingual. Please check the website for updated information.”
