Emerging from the human psyche and showing characteristics of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism, graffiti removal has secured its place in the history of modern art while being created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements. It is no coincidence that funding for “anti-graffiti” campaigns often outweighs funding for the arts. Graffiti removal has subverted the common obstacles blocking creative expression and become one of the more intriguing and important art movements of our time.

I'm so excited to see this again. I recall seeing this screened at Rezfest in San Francisco many years ago. It's incredibly engaging and quite funny in the ernest delivery. It feels like a mocumentry at times but honestly, is it? Watch a relive the critical theory discussions of yesterday!
Not entirely convinced of the artistic value of graffiti removal, but it was thought provoking.
