The artistic aspect of graffiti has little resonance in public discourse. Graffiti is mainly talked about in the context of crime, security and justice, and often the word vandalism is used.
The real vandals, however, are to be found elsewhere. Tonight, the murals at Bilk S-Bahn station, which were only completed last week, were vandalised. Unfortunately, I have not yet had the opportunity to see the finished paintings, and unless the artists can repair the damage, it will probably remain with the paintings shown from the process of creation. The question remains WHY? Who could not bear the statement contained in this mural ? Who had to destroy the artistic examination of the wish for a peaceful world and the homage to those displaced by war?
