Paris 2013

July 2013 saw two discussions about graffiti in Paris. One included two scientists of the EHESS and the ministry of culture discussing with writers coming from the 19th district of Paris, the Paris region in general, from South Africa and from Senegal about the artification of graffiti and the role of graffiti in gentrification. The other one was a meeting initiated by the Graffiti Research Lab, on the topic of tagging. One highlight included the audience, a lightwriting-artists and a calligrapher discussing lively about the beauty and ugliness of fire extinguisher tags. -> A report on the Just-blog
