This chapter examines new subjectivities and their contradictions in the 15M movement (also known as the Indignados). It considers the creation of small ‘tent cities’ in the plazas at the start of the movement and how it intensified the coordination of different abilities that was taking place online in support of protesters in the plazas. It argues that the 15M movement avoided participation in the hierarchical, competitive logics of the neoliberal cultural authority that was being blamed for the economic crisis in Spain and strengthened a cultural model based on mutual empowerment. It explains how this model emerged as one of the main elements of a new political and cultural ‘climate’, underpinning many other collective processes such as those of the Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca, Marea Blanca, and Marea Granate. It also discusses the ways that intellectuals and the mass media have tried to discredit the ‘cultures of anyone’ arising from the ‘15M climate’.

Keywords:   tent cities, 15M movement, cultural authority, economic crisis, Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca, Marea Blanca, Marea Granate, intellectuals, mass media, cultures of anyone
