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.

Die erste Schicht Graffiti in München
München 1983, die Wände sind unberührt. Politische Sprüche und Liebesbotschaften zieren vereinzelt das Grau. Plötzlich aber tauchen abstrakte Zeichen, seltsame Figuren und kryptische Buchstaben- Kombinationen auf, von denen niemand weiß, was sie bedeuten sollen. Sie verbreiten sich im Stadtbild und markieren den Beginn der Graffiti- Bewegung in Deutschland und Europa. Die Fotografien aus den Archiven des Strafverteidigers Konrad Kittl und des Volkskunde-Professors Peter Kreuzer zeigen die erste Schicht Graffiti in München: Versuche mit Farbe und Form, ohne Vorwissen, Kategorien und Regeln.
the first layer of graffiti in Munich
It is 1983 in Munich, the walls are gray and bare, marked only by a few political slogans and the odd declaration of love. Then, suddenly, abstract sign language, peculiar characters and cryptic combinations of letters begin to appear, their meaning a puzzle to all who chance upon them. The pieces begin to spread across the city and mark the start of the graffiti movement in Germany and throughout Europe. The photographic archives of attorney Konrad Kittl and Anthropology academic Peter Kreuzer reveal the first layer of graffiti in Munich: experiments with color and form, unprecedented and free from rules or preconceptions.

„The idea of style and competing for the best style is the key to all forms of rockin‘.“ – Style Wars, 1983.
Are subcultures, like graffiti, floating free in their own space, or are they connected to the rest of society? In Forms of Rockin’, graffiti styles for the first time are connected to graphic design and other popular culture expressions such as music, fashion, photography, industrial design and movies. Anssi Arte analyses some of the most powerful visual symbols of the 1970s, 80s and 90s and compares design, display typefaces and graffiti styles. The visual styles of James Brown, Blade Runner, the Memphis group and grunge music all appear together with classic fonts and graffiti writers.
The clear yet analytical narrative and carefully crafted visualizations make it appealing to both graphic design aficionados as well as graffiti enthusiasts. But Forms of Rockin’ is more than that. This is a must for everybody interested in contemporary popular culture and design history.
Forms of Rockin‘ traces and defines the stylistic conventions in graffiti letterforms that have become iconic and globally acknowledged ideals. From the early New York tags to the mid-1990s ugly-fresh styles of Scandinavia, Forms of Rockin’ tells the story of how popular culture and graffiti styles influences each other.
Anssi Arte (b. 1981) is a Helsinki-based graphic designer specialized in visual identities and brand architecture. He has a formal (MA) education in graphic design from the Aalto University of Arts, Design and Architecture.
Besides graphic design he is a graffiti enthusiast since childhood, specialized in studying and practising the traditional European and Scandinavian letterforms and aesthetics.
