This event has ended.

On October 7, 2011, in response to the Occupy Wall Street movement, Storefront launched a Call for Ideas entitled "Strategies for Public Occupation" which invited submissions from architects, artists and citizens at large to offer their ideas for enabling acts of communication and action between civil society and the structures of economic and political power. Gathering expertise from the various acts of civil occupation throughout the world during the last months and constrained to one image and one text of maximum 200 words, submissions ranged from the technical to the oneiric. With a prize equivalent to a New World Order ,Storefront received more than 100 submissions.

The exhibition presents the submissions delivered to the Call for Ideas and a 7-day marathon of talks, workshops and events brings together a creative force of experts, artists, architects and citizens at large to discuss the current state of affairs in relation to the Occupy movement. The exhibition displays proposals for spatial occupations for public demonstrations and actions in cities throughout the world, and the events aim to identify the limitations and possibilities of tools of production and rethink new ways of cohabitation. All projects submitted will be available for browsing, consultation and distribution as part of the exhibition and through Storefront's website and archive.
