An artists’ squat on rue de la Grange-aux-Belles in Paris.

The squat is vital, vital, vital—fundamental—to the precarity movement. It’s a superinnovative force, a counter power… Either squats will become a center for survival amidst the collapse of civilization—which is likely—or they will be an epicenter of positive change, an important concern for larger segments of society… Ultimately, what we want is to break down the boundary between the squat and the surrounding urban territory.
