KLANTE, ROBERT / HUBNER, MATHIAS.
Evolving from graffitti and strret art, the next wave of artwork is now hitting public spaces. this book is a striking collection of these personal, often playful and thought-provoking sculptures and installations in urban surroundings that use and react to walls, traffic signs, trees, advertisements, trashcans and any and all elements of the modern city.
"Urban interventions" is the fisrt book to document these very current art projects-as well as their interplay with fine art, architecture and urbanism- in a comprehensive way. This perceptive work bringsart to the masses and helps us to rediscover our every day surroundings. It challenges us to question if the cities we have are the cities we need while adding a touch of magic to mundane places and situations.
