Cultural Politics of Degrowth
What can I expect?
From Extinction Rebellion’s regenerative culture to Fossil Free Culture’s art-actions, from the Suffragettes’ white dresses to Black Lives Matter’s protest dance performances, cultural practice is a strong political force. It mobilizes and paralyzes masses. It uncovers and conceals systemic injustice. It unites and divides diverse identities. It builds and breaks fortresses of denial.
This Key Conversation is about culture as a strategy in degrowth politics. It explores how to mobilize cultural forms, narratives and identities as tactics for a degrowth transition.
A broad variety of activities and debates is welcome in this conversation: From designing degrowth art-actions, to writing anti-growth protest songs, from connecting identities for degrowth activism, to promoting degrowth voices in cultural criticism, from creating degrowth campaign posters, to performing idleness as political resistance.
Let’s co-create an effective, diverse and irresistible cultural politics for degrowth!
