Nuart Journal – Number 7


Within the last years the Nuart Journal established itself as the leading publication for critical commentary on urban art, street art and graffiti. It includes traditional peer-reviewed academic papers as well as more experimental modes of research. It is a site for scholars, artists, curators and independent researchers to publish articles, conversations, reviews, projects and opinion pieces on street art and related topics.
