Mirroring Counter Strategies

  • Silas F. Harrebye


From broad social movements to sudden uprisings, social enterprises, smaller cadres of professional activists and everyday makers around the world are challenging the status quo. Nancy Fraser’s latest theory of framing and Michel Foucault’s concept of heterotopology form the theoretical basis from which I here show how creative activism in practice is an example of how counter-mirroring strategies today are used to circumvent what I characterize as the reflexive character of capitalism. The ambiguous social architecture of facilitating meta-activism depicted so far has been pointing towards these mirroring technologies aimed at creating an alternative reflection.
