In 2012 the Occupy movement decided to participate in an international art exhibition in Berlin and shortly after vanished eventually. I wanted to know what happened to the movement when it stepped into the realm of art and why it necessarily resulted in a contradictory outcome for the movement’s goals. The article stirred up some controversial debate with a member of Occupy, Noah Fischer who responded in the Fall issue of 2015. I also had the chance to comment to his response.
