In the 1980s the city of Groningen had a thriving graffiti scene – an artistic movement that sprang from subcultures including punk and hip-hop. This exhibition brings back the pioneering years of local graffiti and street art through stories, photographs and film.
The show is curated by Stichting Kladmuur, led by Aileen Middel (graffiti artist Mick La Rock) and Hugo Engwerda. Mick La Rock and Stars & Weak are creating two new works for the Groninger Museum, which will be on display in the exhibition.
Graffiti in Groningen has been made possible by Effektief Groep.
