Description

Virtuosity and violation, negotiating and transforming graffiti



In his Ph.D. thesis The G-Word, art historian and former graffiti writer Jacob Kimvall studies different ways of describing and framing graffiti in four historical and cultural contexts: the graffiti writing on the Berlin wall; the Zero Tolerance on graffiti in Stockholm during the 1990s; the interactions between subcultural graffiti and the cultural and commercial interest of the institutional art world in the 1970s and 80s; the collecting, organising and publishing of images by graffiti enthusiasts.
