Quick video Trailer The creation of the TAGS!
They are anonymous. They are viral, reckless and undesirable. They grow where they can. Innocent bystanders run daily past ’em. They arise casually and rarely come alone. They appear on street posts, dustbins, facades, on art in public spaces, historic buildings and religious institutions. No surface in urban areas is safe from them. For years, they cover most suburbs and inner cities, destroy their proper image and cost a fortune to clean.
But have you ever imagined today’s cities without tags and graffiti ? Who knows actually exactly what is the meaning of TAGS? And what happens culturally and symbolically, if TAGS are suddenly displayed on a advertising poster? The exhibition offers an encounter with the misunderstood character of TAGS and a speculative view to their future development.
