The new issue of the republicart web-journal focuses on current concepts of "public sphere(s)", "publicity" and "public spaces".
Subject of investigation are the real places that have developed a special relevance for artistic and political activisms or have emerged from them: squatted houses like the Centri Sociali in Italy, churches and embassies occupied by Sans-Papiers in France and Belgium, (anti-globalization) demos from Strasbourg to Buenos Aires, camps at various European borders and in Mexico City. And where places cannot be reappropriated, there are events, situations and moments that temporarily disrupt the mechanisms of control and spectacle.
With texts by Franco Berardi Bifo, Boris Buden, Alice Creischer und Andreas Siekmann, Marion Hamm, Andrea Membretti, Stefan Nowotny, JÃ¼rgen Schmidt, Tristan Wibault and Kathrin Wildner.
