Project description

Since the local elections in 2015, citizen platforms affiliated with 15M are actually governing in many big cities and hundreds of towns throughout Spain. With this project, I will investigate how these citizen platforms intervene in the production of urban space (in Madrid and Barcelona) to challenge dominant political-economic configurations and implement alternative political projects.
