Graffiti is omnipresent in Vienna. They adorn walls, bridges and trains. But what is behind this urban art form?

The authors have carefully collected, structured and selected thousands of photos and information. The first volume of the series covers the period from 1984 to 1999. During this time, graffiti in Vienna developed from a marginal phenomenon to a recognized art form. The book sheds light on the beginnings of the graffiti scene in Vienna, its development and its engagement with the public. But the roots of graffiti culture go back much further. The authors go on a search for traces back to the 4th century AD.
