NYC in the 1980s: Graffiti starts. Keith Haring, Basquiat, and Co. adopt the codes of the sprayers – and carry this art from the street to the galleries. At the same time The Clash and FUTURA2000 record a song that should have far-reaching consequences for the graffiti movement in Europe: The first piece is made in London. Fute tells how it happened. 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.
