THIERRY FURGER – Going Over

27 Mai - 2 Juli 2016

Thierry Furger (b. 1975 in Switzerland) discovered the world of graffiti during the 80s. For over twenty years, Furger has followed and documented the subculture of writers and their works. With his solo show "Going Over" he investigates the wider characteristics of the graffiti universe. These include, in particular, its transience and the aesthetics of the cleaning and removal of illegal tags and graffiti pieces, but also strategies, techniques and situations of illegal writings. He tries to capture the development, transience and materiality.
