The thesis, using various theories, shows gentrification as negative process that cleanses the city in terms of culture and politics. Gentrification is theorized in the context of neoliberalism, which conceives of the city as an enterprise. The destructive, repressive and authoritarian tendencies of neoliberalism are shown through the process of gentrification. The culture produced in such gentrified zones is subjected to market mechanisms, while what is socially and ideologically unsuitable must disappear. Autonomous zones are conceived as important bulwarks of all those displaced by gentrification, of self-produced and non-subservient culture, critical thinking and political (self)organising. This thesis stands with all those on margins, and shows the destructive power of gentrification through the case of recently evicted Autonomous Factory Rog. Combining autoethnography and the analysis of qualitative interviews, the thesis reveals the narratives of people from the community, their position in autonomous spaces and within the city at large. It also focuses on their experiences from the eviction of Rog, attempted in 2016, and the realisation of the eviction in 2021. Autonomous Factory Rog is seen as resistance to neoliberal devastation of society and authoritarian forces.
