The Rise of Graffiti Writing – From New York To Europe (4/10) Amsterdam 1980 | 1980 – 1982


Early 80s: New York sprayers such as Dondi, Futura2000 and Crash and Daze make their first exhibitions in Amsterdam, where there is already a graffiti scene. There we meet Mickey, who tells us about the beginnings of writing culture in Amsterdam. In ten episodes, the documentary series traces the rise of the graffiti movement: from New York in the 1970s to Amsterdam and Paris to Munich, from where the graffiti virus infected Europe from the 1980s onwards. The next episode is from 20.11. on ARTE Creative.
