Individuality and Art

The result is an area enclosed on individuality, which in many cases leads to crime, drugs, or various manifestations of violence, including suicide. But there is a sector in search of his identity, trying to generate their own institutions.

Manifest from the collective and anonymous use of the walls, in some cases, exceeding the classical painted murals reaching artistic, in musicians, theater groups, mimes, living statues, jugglers, etc. etc. installed in streets, public places or means of transport, claiming not only the collective economic contribution but also express their decision to communicate their art or their concerns, outside the official spaces. It includes, most especially, the many youth centers of culture, whatever the name to be awarded, perfect example of the presence of a project, which involves oral language codes, habits, practices, new mingled with those inherited from previous generations particularly with some signs of recovery of nuances of popular culture and militant of the 70 ‘.
