Project

During my stay at Faber I will be working on an article on graffiti’s’ challenges. My aim is to contribute to the understanding of contemporary conflicts faced by this practice from an institutional perspective. Many cities around the world daily deal with the graffiti art. This reality present in the public sphere has some protection under artistic freedom. Therefore, communities and the normative treatment tend to be somehow more flexible with this activity. However, this artistic activity, such as any other activity, is not unlimited. Most of its limitation are located in the urban space. My study wishes to contribute to increase freedom and equality in an open city trough the analysis of the graffiti phenomenon.
