Street art is any art – specifically visual art – developed in publicspaces. It can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil, sculpture,sticker art, street poster art, video projection, guerrilla art, flash mobbing, wheatpasting, etc. Typically, the term is used to refer to unsanctionedor “prohibited” art, as opposed to institutional artistic initiatives.

If so, whatare the signs, texts, codes and practices through which graffiti, stencilsand other forms of street art can serve as means to express oppositionand dissent? The present paper aims at answering these questions at firstthrough a general historic introduction that will try to contextualize anddescribe the street art phenomenon and its evolution over time, thenfocusing on two specific case studies whose purpose is to investigate,from a semiotic point of view, its role in the expression of dissent andprotest acts. Especially, we will deal with the use of graffiti, stencilsand posters as means of protest against two very known and discussedexamples of separation barriers
