What is the relationship between street art and the law? In his latest book A Philosophy Guide to Street Art and the Law, Andrea Baldini argues that street art has a constitutive relationship with the law. A crucial aspect of the identity of this urban art kind depends on its capacity to turn upside down dominant uses of public spaces. Street artists subvert those laws and social norms that regulate the city. It is shown that street art has not only transformed public spaces and their functions into artistic material, but has also turned its rebellious attitude toward the law into a creative resource.
The book aims at elucidating and arguing for this claim, while drawing important implications at the level of street art’s metaphysics, value, and relationship with rights of intellectual property, in particular copyright and moral rights. At the other end of the spectrum of contractual art, street art is outlaw art.
Professor Andrea Baldini will present his latest book APhilosophy Guide to Street Art and the Law, with Dr Susan Hansen (Middlesex University), Dr Sabina Andron (University College London), Dr Rafael Schacter (University College London) and Dr Enrico Bonadio (City, University of London) discussing the arguments developed in the book.

The YTL Centre usually holds three 'Law and Justice' forums per year. These are one day events that discuss major questions of the day by bringing to bear inter-disciplinary perspectives from politics, philosophy and law.
The aim of the Forum on 'Technology and Manipulation' is to explore how recent technologies can be used (and have been used) to influence our behaviour in ways that bypass our capacity to deliberate as autonomous agents. This is the case both in relation to exercises of individual autonomous agency (for example, when particular software tracks our behaviour and directs us to make certain purchases or adopt a certain lifestyle) and in relation to exercises of collective agency (a recent example is the Russian interference in a number of elections via the use of bots and fake social media accounts). To explore this issue, this forum will bring together legal and political philosophers as well as experts in computer science and communication.
Please note that attendance for the entire event is not compulsory, but you must register in advance.
Venue: Room 2X112, Bristol Business School (X Block), Frenchay Campus

Abeena will be speaking on the topic 'Reconsidering defence disclosure'.
Dr Hannah Quirk is a reader in Criminal Law at Kings College London. Her research interests centre around wrongful convictions and sentences. She has published extensively on the erosion of the Right to Silence and wrongful convictions.
