Graffiti through Space: A historiography

Sanchita khurana

Abstract


There is by now abundance of literature on urban space but it is primarily a ‘postmodern’ approach to the city, merged with social theory that serves my understanding of graffiti as a subversive spatial practice, capable of dismantling to some extent Modernist narratives supposedly writ large in urban planning and control. I have therefore chosen to ruminate in this paper, on those influential theories that tend to appeal for space as a mode of deconstruction.
