Product Description
Full of vibrant, energetic and explosive images, Broken Windows – Burning New York gives voice to an art movement that is largely undocumented and often misunderstood.
In New York in the 80s graffiti moved from the subway trains to large walls which allowed it to become more refined and concept driven. Because walls provide a more stable and reliable surface they have encouraged the artists to create works of much greater depth and complexity and the form is now arguably at its peak. Although it is often indecipherable to the world at large, as Broken Windows – Burning New York shows, graffiti is a radical and daring means of visual communication.
Features extensive interviews, the largest collection of women’s ‘graffiti’ to date, and more than 180 artists from The United States, Germany, France, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Italy, and Norway.
