kollektiv orangotango was founded in 2008. Since then, it has been constantly developing through a network of critical geographers, friends, and activists who deal with questions regarding space, power, and resistance. With its geographical activism, the collective seeks to support processes and oppositional actors who instigate social change by prefiguring social alternatives. It conducts emancipatory educational work and organizes concrete political and artistic interventions intended to encourage reflections on and changes to social conditions. Through workshops, publications, mapping, excursions, and creative interventions within public space, its members collectively learn how to read space and how to initiate emancipatory processes from below. By sticking to the traditions of activist research, they connect theoretical reflections and concrete actions.
