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.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
Peter BENGTSEN (Art History and Sociology, Lund University)
Myrto TSILIMPOUNIDI (Geography, University of Aegean)
