GraffiCity Conference in Cologne, Germany

The Morphomata Centre for Advanced Studies in collaboration with The Research Network for Latin America have produced a conference on the politics and history of graffiti, GraffiCity, where academics seemed to configure this topic between sociology, anthropology, archaeology and art. The conference took place between 17-19 April, this is what stays of interest:

– Morphomata (the research centre itself)

Allan Gretzki – graffiti artist and researcher focused on culture jamming

Mona Abaza – for her thorough and well evidenced documentation of contemporary Cairo graffiti

Martin Langner – the most well researched account of Pompei wall inscriptions I have ever come across

Javier Abarca – teaching about graffiti in Madrid

Sascha Schierz – solid knowledge on graffiti related policy and legislation

Johannes Stahl – my intellectual kindred spirit throughout the conference
