From Wolf-Dieter Obst
The number of graffiti crimes in the country is increasing significantly. The cautious behavior of the authorities and the praise of cultural workers create the impression that every sprayer is allowed to act out his dubious art anywhere. Our police reporter Wolf-Dieter Obst thinks this is a wrong signal.
Stuttgart – Whether graffiti, tags and pieces are art, a culture of our society, that has been a hotly debated question for a long time. An exhibition in the city palace wants to take this into account, wants to make it clear that the colorful spraying is an urban phenomenon that cannot be reduced to damage to property alone.
