What are the prospects of using graffiti as the foundation of a transnational cultural academy?
By graffiti I don’t mean just anything inscribed on walls. I mean something more specific, the aerosol art that started in Philadelphia and New York City in the late 1960s and early 1970s and that had gone world-wide by the end of the century. It’s the first form of abstract art to reach a mass audience.
As vandalism, it exists on the borders of existing art culture.
It is nowhere and everywhere.
It is the future.
