Through the artworks of contemporary artists working with sound in the city, we will address the issue of Space and the City to analyse the emergence of other spatial dimensions in the urban context, as the social, anthropological and political ones are. In order to put in context these concerns into the discourses of Contemporary Art, we will turn our attention to some previous examples and theories of the 50’s and 60’s that will give us the clues to interpret Urban Sound Installation at the present moment.
