25-26 November 2006

Resistant Maps, artistic actions in the
interconnected urban territory is a conference
and exhibition produced by the 'Leonardi V-Idea'
Association (Genoa, Italy) and curated by
Alessandro Ludovico, Gianfranco Pangrazio,
Tommaso Tozzi, Marco Villani.

The representation of territory holds a
historical role in the privileges of power.
Geographical data has always been in its hands.
The regaining of this representation goes through
description and sharing practices (often in
personal perspectives too). This is possible
thanks to collaborative tools and the consequent
value shifting of maps. Maps are not granted
anymore by structures of power, but built by
individuals who, drawing on the ideas of the
psychogeographical movements, redraw the urban
space according to fresh new coordinates.
