Wiedersehen in TUNIX! Ein Handbuch zur Berliner Projektekultur

#7 / At the Tunix Congress in Berlin in 1978, the undogmatic left developed new forms of work and projects.


At the Tunix Congress in Berlin in 1978, the undogmatic left developed new forms of work and projects. In an atmosphere of discussion, action and festivity, lively debates took place on such subjects as, among others, alternative energy production, self-run youth centres, neo-Nazis in West Germany, feminism and ecology, the ‘newʼ French theory, survival in urban neighbourhoods, left-wing bookstores and bars.

The meeting in Tunix was a breeding ground for new project formulations. The term project stood for networking, flexibility and self-determined activities. Since then, the use of the term project has shifted – the project itself has become a model of neoliberal forms of work and organisation. Forty years after Tunix, this ambivalence, as well as the political concerns inherent in the praxis of projects, must be re-considered.
