Room 001.07 The City Is Ours. The Aesthetics of Protest

Room?s details

The theatre of democracy is the street. With the Spanish State’s efforts to empty them, citizen demands spilled over into factories and neighbourhoods, while new subjects made demands on cities’ common governments through artistic practices — ephemeral art, graffiti, posters, and political graphic art were some of the visual devices employed at the time, along with demonstrations and performances. The emergence of citizen mobilisation was also inextricably linked to the formal strategies that made it visible and documented it.
