This is the website of the Autonomous Factory Rog. It is meant for informing the public about daily events in the Factory, past endeavours and future plans. It provides the overview of the factory and individual subpages of it’s collectives and places. The website also serves the creation of the supporting network for saving Autonomous Factory Rog against the threats of eviction from the municipality of Ljubljana.

Rog is a unique place and complex community with over twenty active collectives and spaces. It is meant for the young and other generations, who wish to create, work, experiment and simply be outside of frameworks of birocracy and profit. Activities are based on voluntary work and accesibility to all.

Where there is will, there is Rog. Let's together keep the factory running.

And see what happens!

Dear people!

The time has come when dark clouds are gathering over Rog again. With the first of June the judicial protection expires and with it, the temporary certainty of the survival of our oasis in the city center. What Zoki will do, we don’t know.
Let’s remember that three years ago we jointly defended our factory against the deceitful night attack of the mayor and his militia, that we held the occupation, whooped around Rog and Ljubljana, gave a loud NO to the municipal plans of transformation, and made a stand for the potential that autonomous spaces have to offer. We believed that in Rog we could create new ways of living, creating and working, so that we can show alternatives to tender and market logics, and that free thought can prevail over bureaucratic single-mindedness. Did we succeed?
Since 2016, much has changed. They closed Argo, they closed Inde, they closed Sokolc. Autonomous spaces across Slovenia and Europe are being cleared at an alarming rate, and in their place there are polished facades that hide a lack of imagination.
In continued defiance we remain skating, swaying heads to good music, pondering and discussing, creating art, training, performing, reading poetry. Still offering help to those who need it most! Still experimenting with different forms of community and co-management.
Much has changed, much is temporary, but there is no end to this story in our future; we’re not giving in because we believe that such spaces must stand - and remain standing!

So come, contribute, participate, eat, sleep, dance, dream, think, talk and co-determine the future of Rog!

We are still colletcting donations for Rog’s legal expenses of the persecuted individuals!

You can find festival program under the upcoming events.

Every day:

  • coordination meeting at 10 am and 8 pm (Social Center Rog)

Casa Africa is faced with another threat of eviction on 2nd of April. Three months ago the compañeros from the squat together with solidarity collectives and activists from the neighborhood and around the city managed to resist the first threat of eviction. We who live in squat Casa Africa and the assembly Suport a Casa Africa are convinced that we can resist and stop the eviction again – for this reason, we call for a manifestation of solidarity and strengthening our bonds, staking our bodies against racism and institutional violence.

Karaoke so zastavljene s čim manj omejitvami kreativnosti in izražanja. Namenjene so predvsem aktivnim udeležencem, ki pridejo igrat ali pet, čeprav so tudi tisti, ki pridejo samo poslušat in gledat dobrodošli. Eno glavnih pravil je FREESTYLE, kar pomeni, da napake v nastopu niso možne. Ne moreš se zmotiti, tudi če se hočeš?! Spodbujamo nastopajoče, da med nastopom komunicirajo in sodelujejo. Po želji omogočimo nastop solo točk, če se izvajalec ne počuti dobro v družbi ostalih, vseeno pa želi nekaj pokazati. Kvaliteta se giblje od vrhunskih do čist u pizdi. Redno in aktivno se karaok udeležujejo zelo dobri glasbeniki in glasbeni navdušenci zelo različnih glasbenih izhodišč in načinov. Prav tako je oder še vedno odprt tudi za tiste, ki niso zelo izurjeni v igranju ali petju, in tudi ti se dostikrat opogumijo in odločijo za nastop. Čeprav so karaoke največkrat glasbene, to sploh ni nobena omejitev, saj vedno znova k udeležbi spodbujamo tudi izvajalce in ustvarjalce ostalih izraznih načinov. Sodelovali smo že s plesalci, cirkusanti, slikarji, vizualisti, VJi, pesniki, gledališči,...

Izkušnje so nas prisilile k temu, da vzpostavimo dobro kontrolo nad odrom in instrumenti. Zatorej naj vsak, ki hoče aktivno sodelovati, s sabo prinese SVOJE instrumente ali druge potrebščine! Bobnarji, prinesite vsaj palčke! Če instrumenta nimaš, se moraš dogovoriti za uporabo z lastnikom instrumenta, ki ga želiš uporabljati! Izvajaj svoje avtorsko delo!* Na odru naj se nahajajo samo nastopajoči!

DOBRODOŠLA!

Ljubljana je na prelomnici. Odločiti se moramo, ali bo naše mesto nakupovalni center, namenjen premožnim obiskovalcem, investitorjem in turistom, ali bo to mesto, v katerem bomo lahko dostojno živeli vsi - ne glede na socialni položaj in ekonomski položaj. Za nami je skoraj desetletje investicij in intenzivne obnove, ki sta centru prinesla lepe fasade, dodatne mostove in številne lokale. Ob vsem blišču pa je izostalo vprašanje, kakšen vpliv ima takšen razvoj na kvaliteto življenja prebivalk in prebivalcev Ljubljane. Danes je očitno, da nas vse več težko pride do stanovanja, da nas visoke cene najemnin izrivajo v podstandardna bivališča na obrobju mesta, da so se razmahnile slabo plačane in prekerne zaposlitve vstoritvenem sektorju, da s(m)o iz mestnih ulic izrinjene vse tiste, ki ne moremo dohajati vsesplošnega višanja cen izdelkov in storitev, in da nova bleščeča podoba mesta sloni na izkoriščanju gradbenih delavcev. Nobenega dvoma ni, da župan dela, vprašanje je le za koga?

Če si želiš živeti v mestu, ki je odprto vsem, se nam pridruži na protestu Lublana je bulana, ki bo v petek, 26. oktobra z začetkom ob 17.00 uri v parku Tabor.

Autonomous Factory Rog in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is supporting the initiative and the fight of zadaistes in this time of general repression happening everywhere around us.

Especially in the context of self-governed, autonomous and alternative spaces. The importance of squats and squatted land initiatives like ZAD lies in enabling cultural and political diversity by constructing the space and environment where it is possible to think about the future of land ownership and food production outside of commodifying and cooptating environment - the state itself.

V zadnjem desetletju smo v Ljubljani preko različnih mestnih iniciativ doživeli izjemen poudarek na promociji “urbanih kultur”, “kulturnih industrij” in drugih vročih fraz, ki domujejo v besedilih evropskih razpisov. V istem obdobju pa se je v centru prestolnice začel odvijati tudi družbeni eksperiment, ki so ga na področju propadle tovarne samoiniciativno zagnali prebivalci mesta. Tovarna Rog je spontana, takorekoč gverilska ulična tvorba – urbana kultura v svoji najbolj organski obliki. In je svojevrsten obrat izraza “kulturna industrija”, v smislu da je nekdanjo tovarno preobrazila v proizvodnjo neblagovnih dobrin – netržne umetnosti, netekmovalnega športa, neinstitucionalne politike. Prostor in skupnost v njem nikakor nista brez napak, a težko je spregledati paradoks, da mestnim oblastem, ki tako vneto promovirajo urbano kreativnost, ta eksperiment predstavlja neznosen madež, ki ga je potrebno za vsako ceno odstraniti iz središča mesta. Lahko bi trdili, da njihov panični odnos do tovarne pove več o mestni politiki kot o Rogu samem. Prav zato nam tovarna Rog ponuja izjemno priložnost, da se poglobimo v razvojne smernice ljubljanske mestne uprave in njihov vpliv na širšo družbo.
