I More developments in urban graffiti, with stickers, murals, actions, and unusual objects

Urban art conquers public space with stickers, extensive murals, and stenciled graffiti, leaving behind its marks and symbols in cities throughout the world. Be means of their subtle, humorous, sometimes even offensive interventions in the urban landscape, the artists force open our practiced visual habits and enter into a dynamic dialogue with the public with their actions, unusual objects, sculptures, and writing.At the center of this publication are works from the Reinking Collection, which contains representative pieces by the most influential artists of the movement, such as Brad Downey, Banksy, Mark Jenkins, Zevs, and many others. This volume examines the reasons behind the ever-growing popularity of urban art and sheds light on the effect the transfer of these works into a museum environment has had on both the works themselves and their reception. Exhibition schedule: Weserburg | Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen, May 16–August 30, 2009
