When unable to sleep at night, you come up with dark thoughts. Last night, in a time of unwanted awakeness, I thought about my next blogpost and came across breathing protection. Respiratory protection, which is on the daily news agenda in times of Corona, has long been an issue in street art. Protection masks are part of the basic equipment of graffiti writers, who use masks to protect from organic gases, and a number of artists have chosen the respiratory mask as a trademark. But it all started with the the „plaque doctor“ and its mask with a nose, shaped like a beak, to protect from airbourne diseases.
