Infrastructures of Dissent

featuring work by Tings Chak 翟庭君, Hannia Cheng, Lynn Hutchinson Lee and Ingrid Mayrhofer, Rana Nazzal Hamadeh and Anthony Youssef with Alan Sears, curated by Mitra Fakhrashrafi and Tara Bursey.

In 1945, Ford auto workers in Windsor went on a 99-day strike and won. Leading up to this historic win, workers and their families gathered in the nearby restaurants and cultural centres of Drouillard Road to learn, to dance, and to act. In his writing on the infrastructure of dissent, sociologist Alan Sears suggests it is these forged networks of solidarity and celebration that nurtured the militancy of the strikers.

Infrastructures of Dissent pays tribute to the parks, restaurants, kitchen tables, shisha lounges and cafés, clubs, sanctuaries and union halls that have seeded both the formal organizing efforts and the informal knowledge exchanges that lead to collective action.
Across geographies and against all odds, we ask: what ways can we rebuild infrastructures of dissent and foster community power?
