The G-word thesis takes various conflicting understandings seriously - accept them as logically inconsistent but assume that they comprehensively in meaning planes are interdependent.
Based on four specific contexts - such as the Berlin wall graffiti during the Cold War and zero tolerance 1990s in Stockholm - examines the thesis how institutions and other societal interests acted to directly or indirectly influence the understanding of graffiti as art, as crime and broader socio-cultural phenomenon.By Jacob Kimvall, published by Dokument Pressá
