Good storytelling strengthens social movements
Disobedience is a platform of discussion dealing with the relationship between artistic practices and political action.
Conceived as a diverse and constantly changing archive, the project represents a guide to the geography of civil disobedience, from the social struggles in Italy in 1977 to the recent anti-globalisation protests before and after Seattle. The project is also an atlas of the plurality of resistance tactics such as direct action, counter-information and biological resistance. By setting in motion different signs and situations, Disobedience is presented as a network of open topics, brought together by artists, activists, film producers, philosophers and political groups. Each of them was invited to create a separate section by involving other artists, documents, political magazines, cheap offset printing, ephemera, etc.. The current sections are: 1977 The Italian Exit, Protesting Capitalist Globalization, Bioresistance and Society of Control, Reclaim the Street, Reclaim the Media, Playtime in Orange/Benelux, Argentina Fábrica Social, Disobedience/East.
Disobedience presents itself as a comprehensive map of social conflict and as a network of contemporary activism.
