Arts Don’t Have to Know How to Behave – A Commentary on Street art in Contemporary Urban Surroundings
Corina Suteu & Cristian Neagoe
Published as part of the Circostrada Network September 2008 issue “Arts in the Urban Space: Contemporary Creation as a Tool”.
From the outset, the issue of street art, as presented in the
following pages, will be considered more in its creative dimension
than in its political one. The interest of the ideas explored lies in
knowing how much today this kind of art is part of a more general
resurgence of a wider creative process. Also, the perspective
chosen as well as the style (an ad hoc commentary using direct
observation of street art practices and set in a general historical
context based on cultural studies in Europe) are aimed at pinpointing
some critical landmarks and at paving the way for further
comments and ideas.
