RaspouTeam is a Paris-based collective of urban artists founded in 2005. They have undertaken several projects aiming to spread information about key moments in the radical history of Paris. Events covered have included the Paris Commune of 1871, and the Paris Massacre of 1961 when hundreds of Algerian protesters were killed by the French police. The group engages with the public at large by using and subverting new technologies (QR codes, GPS data, online maps) mixed with ‛old-media’ urban interventions such as posters, stencils and graffiti. Onscreen actions and on-the-street experiences are closely linked in presentations where tools of commercial advertisers are turned into tools for historical enlightenment.


“En 2011, les murs parisiens servent de nouveau de support pour d’immenses sérigraphies retraçant les grands événements de cet épisode révolutionnaire et collées par une bande de trois amis venus du street art, connue sous le nom de Raspouteam.”

– Audrey Olivetti, Théâtres Politiques

The Bristol Radical History Group was formed in 2006 with a view of opening up some of the hidden history of their home city to public scrutiny, to challenge some commonly held ideas about historical events and approach this history from below. In the tradition of the History Workshop movement the genesis of BRHG was in a sports club rather than the academy. Over the last decade BRHG has been able to successfully integrate the formal lecture with street performance, the organic intellectual with the academic, and engage the public in the excitement of radical history by the use of different media, such as public talks, recreations, film screenings, historic markers and pamphlets. BRHG is currently engaged in several research projects and has helped form a number of community and campaigning history groups in the city.

“Lest we forget, the Bristol Radical History Group has renewed the History Workshop tradition in many ways.”

– Peter Linebaugh
