    29.90

    German edition of Writing the memory of the city.
    Berlin is still the city of writing of modern times. This book assembles 15 Berlin artists from a circle that originated in writing. They are linked by a long, partly shared experience in Berlin‘s public space. The reader is given an insight into the ideas and thoughts of a heretofore hermetic movement, whose effects are mainly revealed on the surface.
    Alongside an assortment of essays, they lead us on a journey away from the common city image, and into a remarkable landscape of outlooks and strata, spaces and dreams, visible and invisible cities.

  • Like Lipstick Traces

    29.90 19.90

    A spectacular photographic journey through the lenses of 13 graffiti artists.
    13 graffiti writers, 2 years, 600 unpublished Polaroids.
    Like Lipstick Traces shows the everyday life of 13 graffiti writers. Consciously, and therefore in contrast with usual graffiti publications, it uses the peculiar medium of Polaroid.
    A Polaroid camera and about one hundred Polaroid photos was sent to well known graffiti writers of different nationalities. The task was to shoot their everyday life with complete freedom in the choice of the motifs. It is that freedom which makes this book so special, but also the fact that all these unpublished photos were taken especially for the book.
    In the beginning of the 21st century, graffiti seems to be taking a line which is totally against its original motivation.
    On one hand, this might be caused by more severe penalties, on the other it is due to the increasing incorporation of the media and big business. Thus, the artists presented in this book devote themselves to this art in a committed way. They do not succumb to commercial pressure and they bring new life into the graffiti movement.
    Artists featured: Aroe (UK), C.B.S (DE), Dumbo (IT), Honet (FR), Kegr (DK), O’Clock (FR), Os Cururus (BR), Rate (USA), Remio (NOR), Rocky (ES), Scan (CA), Smash (CH), The E.R.S (BE).

  • Tag Town

    19.90

    Graffiti hat sich bis in die entlegensten Winkel der Erde ausgebreitet und ist damit zur größten Kunstbewegung der Geschichte geworden und jeder Graffiti-Autor begann seine Writing-Karriere mit einem Tag. Die Entwicklung eines originalen, konsequent geschriebenen Namens ist die Haupthandlung eines Writers.
    Die Fotos in Tag Town aus den 60er Jahren zeigen uns die Ursprünge von Graffiti im New Yorker Stil.
    Tags und Pieces teilen ein gemeinsames Erbe, und wenn du eins verstehst, kannst du auch das andere verstehen.
    Für diejenigen, die lernen, Tags zu lesen, öffnet sich eine Welt des ästhetischen Ausdrucks und der Kommunikation. Tags sind eine universelle Sprache – der Jazz der Schrift. Tag Town enthält auch seltene Fotos von Arbeiten auf der Straße von Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring und Kenny Scharf, Künstler, deren Tag-inspirierte Arbeit geholfen hat, die schnell wachsende Street-Art-Bewegung zu gründen. Der begleitende Text basiert auf Interviews mit den New Yorker Graffiti-Pionieren Blade, Part 1 und Snake 1.

    Martha Cooper hat sich in New York City seit 30 Jahren darauf spezialisiert, urbane Kunst und Architektur zu fotografieren.

     

    Graffiti has spread to the far corners of the earth and in the process has become the biggest art movement in history and every graffiti writer began his or her writing career with a tag. Developing an original, consistently written name is the primary act for a writer.
    The photos in Tag Town, dating back to the 60’s, introduce us to the origins of New York style graffiti.
    Tags and pieces share a common heritage and by understanding one, you can understand the other.
    For those who learn to read tags, a world of aesthetic expression and communication opens up. Tags are a universal language – the jazz of lettering. Tag Town also contains rare photos of work on the street by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, artists whose tag-inspired work helped found the rapidly growing street art movement. The accompanying text is based on interviews with New York graffiti pioneers Blade, Part 1 and Snake 1.

    Martha Cooper has specialized in photographing urban art and architecture in New York City for thirty years.
