Feminist Culture and its radical critique on patriarchal identity politics gain in importance and seem to offer the key to overcome this form of exclusion. If habits and self-image are manifesting distinctions of class, agency becomes the main requirement for access to Open Source technology. But also access to politics, art and other fields of self-expres- sion, a strong trust in the potential to change the own situation needs to be

The maps of these collectives give us an idea about which forms of counter-power we need to create and what social struggles are, as they are much more than mere representations. In order to create counter-cartographies, their practices invert sovereignty of a car- tography of control. And, in fact, these maps can also be seen as starting points for subversive actions.

In other words, instead of asserting art’s autonomy in order to represent a utopia unattainable to any concrete politics, art is to become an instrument of the practi- cal-political realization of what is micro-topically possible: assisting in achieving social participation. In effect, however, this theoretical shift merely

the famous Sarajevski duh, the vibrant cosmopolitan spirit of the capital, which marks a cultural superiority of its native population, bypasses ethnic divisions. Despite the discriminatory and class-oriented − exclusionary − character of the Sarajevo’s cultural spirit, the domain of art and culture remains the most important fi eld for bypassing the constraints of ethno-politics. Art has turned into the most potent sphere allowing artists from diff erent genres to express themselves outside of the ethnic box. Although traversed by class and gender, art
