“Resisting Teargas”, or “The Conditions of a Collective Struggle”

Tear-gas as an ambient affective threat. The creation of a cloud of danger that physical inflicts itself on multiple bodies, uniting them in a shared struggle of care.

The commons have become a danger-zone, producing solidarity in a relatable experience of pain that permeates the assembly of the city’s people.
