Political Graffiti in Critical Times: The Aesthetics of Street Politics (Hardback)

£115.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Whether aesthetically or politically inspired, graffiti is among the oldest forms of expression in human history, one that becomes especially significant during periods of social and political upheaval. With a particular focus on the demographic, ecological, and economic crises of today, this volume provides a wide-ranging exploration of urban space and visual protest. Assembling case studies that cover topics such as gentrification in Cyprus, the convulsions of post-independence East Timor, and opposition to Donald Trump in the American capital, it reveals the diverse ways in which street artists challenge existing social orders and reimagine urban landscapes.

Ricardo Campos is a researcher at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Social Sciences (CICSNova, Nova FCSH), Portugal. His books include Transglobal Sounds: Music, Identity and Migrant Descendants. Yiannis Zaimakis is Professor of Sociology of Culture and Local Societies and Director of the Social Analysis and Applied Social Research Laboratory at the University of Crete. Andrea Pavoni is a research fellow at DINAMIA'CET (centre for socioeconomic and territorial studies), University Institute of Lisbon, and associate editor at Lo Squaderno: Explorations in Space and Society.
