the first European festival on creativity

2012 Programme

Event #31

Jacopo Perfetti

La Street Art e il caso Banksy

Street art is around us and concerns us all. From the blue streets by Henk Hofstra in Drachten, Netherlands to Banksy’s murals in Bethlehem, to those by Blu in Krakow, to JR’s portraits in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro or those by Sten and Lex in Køge, Denmark, to ivan’s blank pages in Italian squares, street art is a global movement that brings art to all for all have a right to experience it. Street art asks for no permissions and leaves its mark wherever it goes. It may be fascinating or annoying. It can but be ir-reverent, ir- ritating, ir-regular, ir-rational, for it is not only there to be looked at, but experienced (duration: approx. 150’ including a 60’ lecture and the screening of a movie on Banksy, Exit through the gift shop, Feltrinelli Real Cinema, 2011).

Through the lenses of Thierry Guetta, the French video maker who has been documenting for years the night work of street artists, the movie Exit through the gift shop will reveal the personality of Banksy, one of the world’s leading graffiti artists, the creation of his murals, and is original, radical idea of democratizing contemporary art.
