First workshops for the Anarchist Book Fair Amsterdam have been confirmed!

Mega Unerhört! Adbusting with police and military

Adbusting: This is term for the politically motivated alteration of advertising posters. If you do this with police or military posters, you risk house searches, DNA analyses and reports to the Terror Defense Center in 2018/19. Thanks to the bold public relations work, it was possible to make the authorities more ridiculous than adbusting ever could because of their exaggerated and disproportionate actions. In the meantime there are several decisions that the opening of advertising showcases and the hanging up of own posters is not punishable. We will tell the unusual story of this rare success and show lots of photographs of real adbusting, and together we will explore the possibilities and limits of adbustings.

Mutual Aid in Academia: Anarchist praxis and solidarity at universities

Academia can be a tough, competitive, and exclusionary environment. We aim, as anarchist academics and archaeologists, to break these barriers and create a safe space on the basis of anarchist praxis and solidarity. With the Black Trowel Collective, an international collective of anarchist archaeologists, we have developed a mutual aid initiative committed to the active support of archaeology students. In this workshop, we will talk about the practical component of setting up mutual aid initiatives in universities and open up the discussion on the struggles students and educators face in academia and actions that are needed for an equal university.


The Anarchist Book Fair Amsterdam is back for the 7th year in a row! The ABFA will take place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November 2023 at the Dokhuis. There will be stands, workshops and talks during two full days of anarchist fun!
