However Distant

In Europe, particularly in France, rap music videos set in urban peripheries display a homogeneous corpus of images, supporting the formation of a contiguous body of practices, focusing on self-affirmation and territorial de-stigmatisation.

Although geographically dispersed, rap culture acts in fact as a landscape for assembly, as an emancipatory platform for the community as a whole.

To shed light on the proximities and common experiences within the European rap scene, this project envisions the creation of a stage that puts together ‘under the same roof’ scenery from France and Italy.
