Getting Up: Subway Graffiti in New York: Craig Castleman: : Books
This is still a really important and informative piece of archives for decade between and Lots of interviews with cawtleman writers, police officers, MTA staff, excerpts from newspaper articles about graffiti There’s so much material in this! It really shows both sides of the conflict around graffiti, even if it’s more compassionate towards the writers than the system trying to regulate them.
I appreciate that Castleman sees graffiti writing as a valued art practice by skilled and ingenuous young people. Nov 14, Tripfontaine rated it it was ok.
This book was assigned for a class I am currently taking. Getting Up illuminated the subculture of New York City’s graffiti writers in the s and the war between them and the dominant culture. It was an interesting book.
