Graffiti in the Public Realms
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Art History.
2012 (English)In: Placing Art in the Public Realm / [ed] Håkan Nilsson, Huddinge: Södertörns högskola, 2012, p. 99-122Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Graffiti in the public realms are commonly described as destruction of public and/or private property, and as an offence directed towards public taste. But how about the removal of the same graffiti, can it be regarded iconoclasm – that is: as an ideological destruction of a visual image? And does it matter if the graffiti is done with a “good purpose”? The discourse regarding the closely related phenomena street art – commonly described as creative, amusing and beautiful – points in that direction. And who is the we-subject that is abused/or amused by graffiti/street art?
