Cities are spaces of a multiplicity of lives, stories, and worlds. The urban fabric is often the setting of forms of violence and oppression which are exercised within specific coordinates and on certain bodies, sometimes more subtly and symbolically and, on other occasions, more pitilessly and brutally.
But cities are also places offering the possibility of emancipation, where individuals can mark out new paths and weave new alliances, where nothing is written, and individual and collective destinies can change direction every day. Inhabiting public space then becomes an act of dissidence, in calling for and affirming one’s own survival.
