The Hamburg graffiti scene is still very much rooted in the 1980s and 1990s. Its protagonists are regarded as pioneers not only within the community – they have had a decisive influence on the visual appearance of Hamburg.
The publication includes an exclusive collection of photos and statements from graffiti writers active at the time, as well as academic essays by renowned authors, presenting graffiti as a well-connected, subcultural phenomenon and offers information about the practice of appropriating the public space.
