Squares on Stage: some aesthetic-political actions from the early 2010s

Clarisse Fraga Zarvos


The beginning of the 2010s was marked by the bursting of major uprisings such as the Arabic Spring, the Occupy Wall Street, the June Days, among others. Despite the distinct contexts, most of these popular protests-demonstrations showed similarities – among them, a strong interaction between body, aesthetics and politics. The article proposes to highlight the performative aspect of these insurrections from examples that took place in squares around the globe.
