Detailed item info

Description
A cunning group of street artists is appropriating public spaces with astonishing artistic interventions. The thirteen artists and their works featured are t only aesthetically motivated but function as social, political and ironic commentary. With the ubiquity of street art, the political and social messages inherent in graffiti are starting to lose their significance. A cunning group of street artists is restoring meaning to this pervasive art form with determination while appropriating public spaces with astonishing art. We Come at Night introduces the work of thirteen street artists whose artistic interventions are t only aesthetically motivated but also function as razor-sharp social, political and ironic commentaries on their surroundings. Artists like Dr. Incent and French activist Zevs are sanitising walls by whitewashing defaced buildings and using the same sand blasting technique used to erase graffiti to write messages on dirty walls. The colourful figures of Os Gemeos and Nina seem as if they just dont have a place in society. With an introductory text by street art expert Martha Cooper, We Come at Night also features works by Akim One Machine, Blu, Brom, JR, Kami & Sasu, Mare 139, Mr. Horse, Nixfitti and Zasd. The book includes a DVD with a film documentary by Volker Sattel and Mario Mentrup about the Outsides project initiated by Red Bull.

We Come at Night: A Corporate Street Art Attack (English)

by Frank Lammer

Format Hardcover

Condition Brand New

Language English

We Come at Night dokumentiert, wie aus Street Art moderne Kunst wird. Die Arbeiten der beteiligten Künstler Blu, JR, Os Gemeos u.a. funktionieren als soziale, politische und ironische Kommentare in der und über die Stadt.

Für We Come at Night wurden einige der besten Street Artists der Welt eingeladen, ihre oftmals klugen Graffiti, Bilder und Objekte an ausgesuchten Orten zu platzieren. Dass Haltung, Inhalt und Ästhetik zusammengehen, zeigen beispielsweise Dr.Innocent, der seine Umwelt in unschuldigem Weiß tüncht. Nicht minder clever agiert der Franzose Zevs, der Sandstrahltechnik , die eigentlich zur Beseitigung von Graffiti eingesetzt wird, nutzt, um Graffitibotschaften auf dreckige Wände zu schreiben. Die farbigen Figuren von Os Gemeos und Nina wirken, als wäre ihnen kein Platz in der Gesellschaft zugedacht.

We Come at Night zeigt authentische Street Art, die nicht nur ästhetisch motiviert ist, sondern sich als bewusste politisch-soziale Haltung positioniert.

Neben einem Vorwort von Martha Cooper und den dokumentierten Beiträgen von AkIm One MachIne, Blu, Brom, Dr. Innocent, JR, KamI & Sasu, Mare 139, Mr. Horse, Nixfitti, Os Gemeos & NIna Zasd, ist dem Buch eine DVD von Volker Sattel & Mario Mentrup beigefügt, auf der sich eine Reportage des Projektes befindet.
