Civil Integrity is an initiative from the field of art. The aim of the initiative is to stimulate a cultural-philosophical debate on the concept of postactivism. This includes critically questioning conventional activism in its strategies and rethinking and implementing concepts beyond scientific thinking.
We increasingly realize today that our conventional thinking and traditional methods of protest are not up to the enormous challenges of the times. Postactivism adds a crucial dimension to these methods: that of the artistic, irrational, and spiritual. It is not possible to fight ecological crises like climate change or a pandemic with our usual mostly very static and technical ideas. It is not about a hostile adversary that needs to be defeated. It is about opening a space in which these issues can be rethought beyond the prevailing narratives and linear solution strategies.
