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!

Due to safety concerns we are cancelling all public events in Rog until further notice. In this time we take care of each other and only do the most neccessary social work.

 
 

Dear people!

The time has come when dark clouds are gathering over Rog again. With the first of June 2019 the judicial protection expired 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:

Na kolesa ne bomo zlezli le v protest politikam sedanje vlade in njenim plenilskim praksam. Še bolj bomo poganjali pedala zaradi vse slabših pogojev življenja, za katere so krive politične in gospodarske elite, desne in "leve", ki so vseskozi sprejemale odločitve in zakone po neoliberalnem kapitalističnem vzoru in nam to prodajale kot višek demokracije.

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!

Ladies and gentlemen of the panel,


We are writing to you with the aim to inform you and encourage you to thoroughly consider the possible consequences of your decisions in your European Capitals of Culture (ECoC) venturing, and understand the possible impact your decision may have on the city of Ljubljana. As there are numerous publications problematizing the ECoC project itself, even at the official European level, we will stick to the local issues, as it is also a matter of urgency for us.
This is simultaneously an open letter and therefore meant for wider audiences in addition to functioning as transparent and open communication.

Since the possibility emerged, we have raised concerns and expressed our horror in several ways over the prospect of the management of the ECoC title in the hands of the municipal government of Ljubljana(MOL). We were joined in our critique by a wide community of local cultural actors as it became evident that the ways in which MOL went about its candidature was marked by its typical exclusivist approach. What we call an authoritarian approach of MOL is nothing new, but in this case it presupposes the support of a multimillion euro investment by the European Commission.
