Product Description
This year again, there will be an extravagant book, matching the URBAN DISCIPLINE 2001 Graffiti Art exhibit, self-made and published by the organizers. Compared to last year it’s much more extravagant, it’s a hardcover, contains way more pages and impresses also due to the unusual format.
Concerning the composition of artists, the close reader will recognize one or the other name, on the other hand, yet less-known talents will be portrayed here with photos of chosen, recent works and personal statements and cites. With it the authors didn’t try, in total opposite of last year, to give a common overview of the artists versatility, but focused especially on their momentary creation-phases.
One may be eager to see the interesting innovations of the scene and how already familiar styles were developed and refined.
Remarkably are the many, partly unpublished co-productions and huge-space-projects, like the 2000m² sized Dockart-Graffiti, hanging in the middle of Hamburg port, or the 600m² sized wall-painting “Die Götter von Rügen” (“The Gods of Rügen”).
Another highlight is the performance of the cult-photographer Martha Cooper, who set milestones in HipHop-culture with her works. Some photos of world-fame will be seen, such as yet unpublished works.

OS GEMEOS (Brazil)
DARE, MATE, TOAST (Switzerland)
LAZOO (Paris)
LOOMIT, WON (Munich)
