Abstract

Bristol born Banksy is usually categorized as a Street Artist, although his art, in content and form, transcends a narrow understanding of this term. This publication primarily deals with Banksy as a contemporary Urban Artist and his relationship with consumer culture. It examines Banksy not only in light of his illicit work on the street, but also in regard to his gallery exhibitions. The study highlights representative works of his art, pieces which demonstrate his versatility, but also stand for different periods of his oeuvre. This book presents the first academic study of Banksy’s art in English; with a history and discussion of the terms Graffiti, Street Art and Urban Art and a rich array of biographical information. It will be of interest to academics and the general public as well.

Abstract

It's hard to miss: a new generation of do-it-yourself activists are using the post-Fordist city as a laboratory for social, political, environmental and aesthetic experimentation. Whether in the community garden or in the FabLab, whether in open workshops or at exchange events - everywhere the protagonists question the relationship between consumption and production, problematizing the commodity character of things and the knowledge they contain. This sophisticated illustrated book combines visual expeditions through the new urban spaces of DIY with stimulating time diagnoses. The contributions illustrate that the young urbanites do not rely on opposition but follow the need for "true democracy" by creating (atmo-) spheres of sharing and exchange. They practice collaborative consumption and play public space in the manner of the Commonists.
