Streitraum 2022/23: Emancipation - and if so, how many??

Carolin Emcke and guests

The concept of freedom is increasingly being undermined and abused – either as a masquerade for the monetisation of the living environment and neoliberal deregulation or as a disguise for right-wing fantasies. How could a more substantive, progressive notion of emancipation be spelt out for the present? How can emancipation be conceptualised in terms of a progression towards greater solidarity in society? Emancipation must always be developed and demanded in a pluralistic way because it is pitted against a number of different conflicts and repres- sions. Emancipation from fossil fuel and its correlating ideologies, but also emancipation from authoritarian, racist, patriarchal structures and practices. How can we imagine a socially more just society? Which emancipatory movements and utopian ideas bring us hope?
