“Reclaim the Streets” is the battle cry ringing from the walls of cities around the world. In Berlin, where artists can do their work fairly openly in daylight, in New York, where graffiti have become an indispensable part of the city, or in Moscow, where the authority’s painting over of the “pieces” looks like a very special form of street art. There are also some statements by one of the pioneers of street art, Blek le Rat, who shows us that his art works in galleries and in the streets.
