Releasing in February from Gestalten, Urban Interventions highlights a group of artists whose work is (in essence) a progression from graffiti and street art. Larger in scale, these works challenge viewers to rethink their notions about the urban environment. The volume is edited by R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, and M. Huebner.
Evolving from graffiti and street art, urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space. Using any and all of the components that make up urban and rural landscapes, these mostly spatial interventions bring art to the masses. They turn the street into a studio.
