Staring from 3rd November, a series of conferences will open the way for an engaging dialogue that takes as its starting point globalization and technological medialization, to then expand into other fields of inquiry, from political philosophy to economic sociology, shining a light, along the way, on the interaction between activism, society, new media and art.

Cops and robbers, the innocent and the guilty, legalitarians and subversives, law-abiding citizens and revolutionaries. The impression is that there is always somebody stealing something and somebody else on their pursuit, like in Cops & Robbers, but the good guys today are often on the wrong side of the law. Roles have become unclear, ideas all mixed up.

Even the guests of this year's Share Festival are in their own way robbers, in the form of counterfeiters, pranksters, culture jammers, interventionists, sign thieves, symbol makers, political agitators, and hacktivists, who take-over the digital dazibaos and surveillance cameras, hacking into civic information systems, claiming back the streets and inciting participation.

Here are their names: Suguru Goto, Nikolai Khalezin, Natalia Koliada, Action30, Janez JanÅa, Salvatore Iaconesi, Oriana Persico, Andrea Caccia, Giorgio Scianca, Steve Kurtz, Annette Wolfsberger, Dmitry Kleiner, Franca Formenti, Nadia Ranocchi, David Zamagni, Mariano Equizzi, Simone Arcagni, Francesco Bernabei, Joseph Grima, Paolo Cirio, Sander Veenhof, and Bruce Sterling.
