This chapter describes the works shown in A World Where Many Worlds Fit, an exhibition from 2008 to 2010 that presented activist art made in the context of anti-globalisation protests against neoliberalism. The essay examines the political presuppositions of the ‘movement of the movements,’ as the alter-globalisation movement came to be known in the mid-2000s. It explores the presumptions and blind spots of workerist post-politics and contrasts this to contending viewpoints and critiques. In the concluding passages, the essay briefly explores Henri Lefebvre’s writings on the state from the 1970s and proposes that biopolitical protest is not merely opposed to the state but is also a feature of its self-revolutionising, a process that is radically open to transformation.
