Individuals and delegates of the groups that meet at Klapperfeld form the »Plenum«. During the plenum we all decide together and according to the consense principle about everything that matters at the Klapperfeld. Some plena are focused on the everyday organisation of the house and our project, others have specific topics. Such topics might be a certain cop-graffiti (and the public discussions evolving around it) or press relations. But we do not want to rotate exclusively around or own issues. We want to take part in the larger political struggles and therefore comment on important questions in Frankfurt and elsewhere. Klapperfeld is a political space – the same is true for its »Plenum«.
Some people who attend the »Plenum« have been doing so since the beginning of the project, others have joined recently. Therefore, we constantly have to discuss all questions that concern this space – nothing is for granted. We are glad that this is the case. The Klapperfeld is supposed to be a space that can be used and shaped by those who engage in it, no matter how long they have been doing so. This is why we try to keep barriers for participation low and to reflect on mechanisms of exclusion.
In a nutshell, the »Plenum« is a very important institution in the Klapperfeld and we invite everyone to join it who uses the space already or is interested in doing so.
The »Plenum« is not as bad as some rumours want it to look like!
