Scribbling through History

Graffiti have been left on natural sites and public monuments in most societies. In spite of their variety in form and content, they can be generally understood as secondary inscriptions that redefine and appropriate such environments: They mark a position in time and history, a relation to space and a territorial claim; they are material displays of individual identity and social interaction.
Although many primary studies of such inscriptions have been carried out, this project wants to address historical graffiti in a holistic manner as a specific cultural practice and as an anthropological object that illuminates these key aspects of human experience.
