Living with street art

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


This keynote talk discussed how street art may influence our perception and use of the urban environment. With a point of departure in the book "The Street Art World" (2014), it argued that the open, unsanctioned and ephemeral nature of street art plays an important role in potentially changing how we relate to our surroundings. The talk also considered how sanctioned, often large-scale, works can contribute to an increasing critical awareness of everyday environs and their use. Further, the talk included personal reflections on the experience of living with street art as a research topic for more than a decade.
