(en)countering crisis + re:making futures

designed poster

the repository of the undercommons (rotu) is an art collective whose concept comes from many places, pleasures + pains. thoughts (un)spoken, whispers, theories + shouts of joy/rage.

it comes from all of us + us all. from our repositories.

as artists, we are also workers, constrained by systems over which we have little to no control, however, we can (and should) make political work (or work informed by politics).

RotU are currently forming as a network of anti-capitalist, degrowth + decolonial artists, for mutual assistance, to share ideas + establish a space which shakes up our understanding of the present + the past. we are creating opportunities to (re)generate new + old vocabularies of social organisation + build better ways to create + live together.

since the covid-19 crisis took hold, RotU are pursuing (en)countering crisis + re:making futures; a collective programme designed to put people into contact with art, creating + making, alongside the practice of liberation + building practical solidarity with today’s struggles.

though we had hoped for our (en)countering crisis and re:making futures series of events to take place in real life (irl), due to the ongoing crises both related to covid and not, this will not be possible. however, as a group made up of individuals who are used to adapting, we plan to undertake (en)countering crisis and re:making futures in a combination of off + online practices.

each rotu member’s contribution will be released over the month of October for you to tune into.
when these are available, the links will be shared on instagram: + you can subscribe to our youtube channel here:
