Saddle-stapled Dutch squatters’ manual with a cover printed in two colour silkscreen and designed by Tjebbe van Tijen. Fourteen offset pages consisting of photographs, technical drawings, instructions, illustrations, newspaper clippings and articles. It assembles a collection of rudimentary instructions for breaking and reinstalling locks, fixing toilets and repairing damaged floors and roofs. These are paired with a sharp critique of planning and development policy, and an assertion of modes of spatial and political practice oriented towards autonomous self-organization and community mobilization.
