This thesis answers questions of what it is that constitutes a struggle enclosing the conflict between Ungdomshuset and the municipality of Copenhagen during the years of 2006-2008 and what this struggle produces in terms of different stories and different futures. The purpose is to create a link between a poststructuralist critique and a critical theoretical strategy as the thesis argues that such a link would be fruitful for feminist activist strategies. The theoretical framework of this thesis takes its point of departure in this link between a poststructuralist critique of change and subjectivation as instable omnipresent effects of discontinuous power processes and a critical theoretical inspired strategy that affirms subject positions roll in producing conditions of life. The conclusions of this thesis are mainly that actions illuminating or constituting a failure in the reproduction of the logics of market economy and the heterosexual matrix produces, through reversed interpellations, intensified webs of connections between practises of resistance with a subject position of disobedience as its effect.
