“A wall of 50 skateboards was painted by graffiti artists Dream TWS, Ders Dalucco, Dosic and VIewone.
Now the unique numbered pieces can be bought in an auktion.
All proceeds go to SKATEISTAN the first skateboardschool in Kabul, Afghanistan.
The painting action took place at the “Go Skateboarding Days” 2010 in Basel, which marked the beginning of the project SKATE TO KABUL.
SKATE TO KABUL collects skateboard equipment to support SKATEISTAN.
Furthermore kids and teenagers of both cultures can contact each other via the donated gear.
They can skate across the cultural gap, as it were.“
“You probably had to enter it somewhere on a website already; a CAPTCHA code.
A random string of awkwardly placed numbers and characters, to be recognized and entered to verify you really are human. Architect Aram Bartholl (DE) places CAPTCHA codes as tags in the public space. Their strange art of writing makes sure the codes blend in the street view unnoticed. “
“Graffiti and unsanctioned art—from local origins to global phenomenon.
In recent years street art has grown bolder, more ornate, more sophisticated and—in many cases—more acceptable. Yet unsanctioned public art remains the problem child of cultural expression, the last outlaw of visual disciplines. It has also become a global phenomenon of the 21st century.
Made in collaboration with featured artists, Trespass examines the rise and global reach of graffiti and urban art, tracing key figures, events and movements of self-expression in the city’s social space, and the history of urban reclamation, protest, and illicit performance. The first book to present the full historical sweep, global reach and technical developments of the street art movement, Trespass features key works by 150 artists, and connects four generations of visionary outlaws including Jean Tinguely, Spencer Tunick, Keith Haring, Os Gemeos, Jenny Holzer, Barry McGee, Gordon Matta-Clark, Shepard Fairey, Blu, Billboard Liberation Front, Guerrilla Girls and Banksy, among others. It also includes dozens of previously unpublished photographs of long-lost works and legendary, ephemeral urban artworks.
• Unpublished images of street art by Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat
• Unpublished photographs by Subway Art luminary Martha Cooper
• Unpublished photos from the personal archives of selected artists
• Incisive essays by Anne Pasternak (director of public arts fund Creative Time) and civil rights lawyer Tony Serra
• Special feature: exclusive preface by Banksy”
