    Online Decolonize Zurich
    We yearn, search and hope for a world where many worlds can co-exist. Our first decolonial zine will be the depository of your ideas, creations, reflections and thoughts.We will look at other imaginaries to create a pluriversal response to our known past, present and futures - a decolonial utopia.

    Power to the People Walk and Decolonize Zurich have put together a tour that will show you Zurich through the eyes of a refugee. Our aim is to make visible what politics have actively and willingly made invisible. Rediscover Zurich free of prejudice and colonial thought.

Theory forms the basis for our action. Reading and discussing texts from postcolonial authors is our original format. We started out as a student reading group at the University of Zurich, but soon came to realize that we want to bridge the gap between Academia and the Public, between Theory and Action. Our monthly discussions are normally held at the OnCurating Space at Sihlstrasse. Due to the circumstances we do them online via Zoom. Everyone is welcome.

Practice follows theory. Every other wednesday we plan new interventions to Decolonize Zurich. Anything from roundtables (“Stammtisch”), get-togethers, cookouts, or workshops. We believe that changing the current social and political status quo requires us to get inventive with new measures and formats. Which means we have to collectively act in creative and provocative ways.

Action. For change to happen we have to act differently.

And no real change without the public. Every half year we organize a public event in collaboration with other institutions, collectives and individuals. You want to help us? Get involved!
