Approaches to documenting and preserving graffiti and street art

Keynote talk at the conference "FORMA(T): Documenting and Archiving Street Art" during Ljubljana Street Art Festival 2021.

Unsanctioned expressions like graffiti and street art are ephemeral. This does not mean that they are necessarily short-lived, but rather that they are generally not intended to last and may be altered or removed at any time. However, aspects of such works often live on through different types of documentation. This talk discussed how we might think about the methods for, as well as the very practice of, documenting – and perhaps preserving – graffiti and street art.
