Article on graffiti as living heritage now out

I wrote a short article for U+I Think, about how to imagine a heritage culture of movement and change, by learning from graffiti.

“Having written a PhD on graffiti – my friends call me Dr Wall – one of my most important takeaways is this: colour and beauty are not intrinsically valuable for cities. Yet our possibility to edit, refuse and appropriate wall discourses is. In other words, permanently becoming creativity is preferable to creativity becoming permanent.”

You can read this – along with a few other interesting reflections on heritage – in the U+I Think newsletter.
