Rebel Streets : Urban Space, Art, and Social Movements

28-29 mai 2019
Université de Tours - Tours (France)

Rebel Streets conference aims to shift the focus from a rather disempowering critical perspective towards urban art to one that stresses its aesthetical and political powers as a part of the urban social resistance. We ask participants to investigate the hypothesis that the aesthetic reconfiguration of the neoliberal city does not only allow for a hegemonic restructuring of the urban environment, but it also facilitates the growth of counter-hegemonic resistance. Critical inquiries should adhere to one of the three areas of the conference theme: 1. Street art and everyday life in the city 2. Art and anti-gentrification resistance 3. Art and the urban social movements
