Art and Politics. The Streets of Rome


An era in which images, rather than words, are used as vehicles of messages and ideas, street art, which was conceived as a form of protest in the 1960s, is the art form that most is most effective in expressing complex content immediately, becoming a workshop for teaching people not only about contemporary culture but also about politics. The ebook and documentaries, ‘Art and Politics: The Streets of Rome’, produced in collaboration with the Istituto Affari Internazionali, aim to contextualize the message of Italian street art within a broader political analysis, investigating four major themes: street art and democracy, street art and climate change, street art and gender, street art and identity.
