Special Issue of Rhizomes: Graffiti
Although there are spaces where graffiti artists do speak about their work (Youtube, 'zines, magazines), the scholarship exploring graffiti has been both limited in scope and in depth. This special edition of Rhizomes will offer a collection of essays on graffiti that seeks to create a dialogue between writers who produce graffiti and scholars who attempt to read and analyze this subculture. We, therefore, wish to neither ghettoize the writers nor the scholars; graffiti is about tangible marks on a surface and this special edition endeavors to understand the writers and their markings in both a material and analytical way.
