Museum of Graffiti Art

Museum of Graffiti Art


By connecting graffiti everywhere in the city, thus we construct amorphous museum. From ugly to beautiful, there are many kinds of graffiti in the city.
They include works by world-famous “writer”. But all of these works are anonymous. We add empty caption to these anonymous works. In a museum, caption is a tiny device which gives authority to the works. By mapping the captioned graffiti to the map and distributing the maps, external form of the graffiti museum appears.
