KRIEGSMASCHINE_WAR MACHINE
During the decades of 1960`s until the 1980´s Switzerland braced a period of massive protests detonated by the Swiss Youth and as a consequence , the country faced a substancial process of deterritorialization, which according to Deleuze and Guatarri is the "complex movement or process by which something escapes or departs from a given territory, where a territory can be a system of any kind : conceptual, linguistic, social or affective. "(A Thousand Plateaus, 1980). After some time, The Sovereign Power calmed down the riots and during the decade of the 90`s Switzerland seized a re-territorialized status. Kriegsmaschine is a project as part of a new , contemporary phase of deterritorialization in order to show "the other Zürich" by transforming a programmed , "well-behaved" urban space into something loud, vibrant and unexpected. | KRIEGSMASCHINE Links Archive is part of the research project of Evangelina Guerra Luján for the degree of Master Advanced Studies in Spatial Design FH of the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste / Zürich 2012.

19 Reasons Latin Americans Come To The U.S. That Have Nothing To Do With The American Dream | KRIEGSMASCHINE_WAR MACHINE | Scoop.it
The conventional wisdom says that most Latin American migrants who come to the United States are looking for a better life, inspired by the "American Dream." And it's hard to deny that there's a lot of truth in that.

Don’t Stare So Romantically: On Extralegal Space in Belgrade

Don’t Stare So Romantically: On Extralegal Space in Belgrade | KRIEGSMASCHINE_WAR MACHINE | Scoop.it
Belgrade became famous in architectural circles in the 1990s for its ‘wildness’; its seemingly spontaneous and unruled spatial practices that at first glance appeared to be a product of a complete ignorance of existing laws. A longer gaze uncovers that the legal-illegal dichotomy in Belgrade was not so simple, and that, behind an exuberant form, the processes that made Belgrade seem wild, have much more to do with the re-regulation of laws, than with their disappearance.
