Gen Atem Meditated Vandalism
A Zen monk who sprayed graffiti on subway cars and threw paint at famous people: Gen Atem, the wild pioneer of the European urban art movement. Now his latest work is presented in this book: a clash with everyone and everything. Both the beautiful and fascinating as well as the horrible and insignificant, even the intangible and incomprehensible is attacked and questioned: is globalization destroying our culture, and does self-representation preserve my identity? Gen Atem relies on the power of images and invites viewers to devise their own answers: only he or she who participates is ready for the revolution.
