The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

There's nothing more worth fighting for.' Social Dreaming with Social Democrats in Austria

This is a description of a Social Dreaming Matrix held with a group of Austrian Social Democrats in 1999, who were local council members in one of the federal states. The idea of holding the matrix came up at a workshop on Organizational Role Analysis (cf. Krantz & Maltz 1997; Lawrence 2006; Newton, Long & Sievers 2006; Sievers & Beumer 2006), that I had organized in Vienna. One of the participants approached me during the coffee break to ask whether I knew someone who could do a workshop with him and some of his colleagues on the presence of the occult in social democratic factions of local councils in the federal state of Austria, where he lived.
