The City Is Ours #4: Torn Posters
Ever notice how those eye-catching ads, posters, and flyers plastered all over our cities gradually transform as they’re torn down? What’s left is often an abstract image, inviting us to find our own meaning. In the late 1940s, artists like Mimmo Rotella, Raymond Hains, and Jacques Villeglé recognized the potential in these fragments, revealing the beauty of ripped posters through their works. But can we truly appreciate these unintentional expressions in our everyday streetscape? Can we uncover their hidden stories and artistic potentials? With contributions by Barton Lewis, El Tono, Guido Bollino, James Dyer, Nick Deakin, Poster Boy, Klara Lidén, Mimmo Rotella and many more.
