Disobedience Archive, a Talk by Marco Scotini

At a time when many still consider the reterritorialisation of the classic Left as a possible response to the advancing neo-capitalistic cultural barbarism, Disobedience, an ongoing video archive aims to provide an alternative model of thought and action, which is wide-reaching, though the archive is limited in its space-time dimensions. It is an investigation into practices of artistic activism that emerged after the fall of the Soviet bloc, which paved the way for new ways of being, saying, and doing. What the disobedience archive intends to represent is the set of artistic strategies and dissent tactics that have been brought to bear over the past few years as a way of overcoming classic modernist dichotomies.
