With increasing frequency passive consumers are becoming active users adopting positions of critical dialogue with the city. At the forefront of this creative action within everyday urban life and its institutions we find the interventionist artist, whose creative energies are redirected away from the relatively privileged and enclosed sphere of the art world to intervene in the wider spaces of the city. Theses on urban art intervention is aimed at opening up a theoretical framework by which we might begin to situate these diverse practices in the context of the production of social and urban space.
