Discussion / Wilderness on the streets
Art Café, Saturday 19.11, 1pm – 2.30pm
Street art is visual art created in public places, visible to the public. Can the public do whatever they want in public spaces? One of the main differences between so-called commercial art, advertising, folk and activist art and original graffiti lies mainly in the message. Art is mostly intended to provoke thought in the people. The issue of permission has also come to the centre of street art, as graffiti is usually done illegally, whereas street art can be the result of an agreement or even a commission. Is it better if these street processes are spontaneous or controlled? If we want to manage street art, what is the best way? We will talk with curators and conservationists.
