Papers in this session will look at graffiti as both socio-spatial phenomena and as indicator of collaborative and contestative place-making. Rather than a purely cultural or aesthetic consideration of graffiti removed from its geographic context, these papers look at the production of graffiti as intrinsic to the conceptualization and study of the urban environment.
