Disobedience Archive is an ongoing, itinerant atlas of the various contemporary resistance tactics: from direct action to counter-information, through constituent practices and forms of bio-disobedience. It accommodates a variety of film material by artists, activists, filmmakers, philosophers and political groups ... The selection of films is organised in eight chapters: the first is about the 1977 demonstrations and riots in Italy, followed by sections on social changes around the Berlin Wall, the social upheavals in Argentina in 2001, the anti-globalization movement’ developments from 1994 onwards, experimental forms of education, community and urbanism, the Israel-Palestinian conflict, political and activist work in the former Eastern Bloc, the effects of 09/11 and a new section dealing with events surrounding what has come to be called the Arab spring.
