Book Description

June 21, 1993 0313288089 978-0313288081

This first cross-national book-length study of street art as political protest and communication focuses on art forms traditionally used by collectives and state interests in the Hispanic world--posters, wallpaintings, graffiti, murals, shirts, buttons, and stickers, for example. Professor Chaffee examines the motives behind the use of street art as propaganda and seeks to explain how it is effective. Using field research and a sociopolitical approach, he assesses contemporary street art in Spain, the Basque country, Argentina, and Brazil. He shows how street art is a barometer of popular conflicts and sentiments across the political spectrum. This comparative analysis is intended for students, teachers, and professionals in the fields of communication, political science, history, and popular culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent study on the subject April 8, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My main complaint about this book is that it only began to touch on the topic at hand. There is such a wide range of areas that touch here, and these few pages, while well laid out and carefully researched, leave a lot out.

What I think this book provides is well written source material for further research and academic writing which seeks to legitimize graffiti and street art as real and important expressions and tools of social and political change.
