The Pretty Vacant: Exploring Absence in Subcultural Graffiti
Presentation by Dr Erik Hannerz (SE)
If you are interested in attending the event, it is recommended that you reserve your spot. By reserving now, you are guaranteed a place and can have peace of mind knowing you are all set. Nevertheless, a ticket is not required to attend, and we’ll make every effort to squeeze you in. We hope to see you there.
Sociology academic Erik Hannerz specialises in the study of subcultural play and urban creativity as ways to “think outside the grid” which can reconnect us to the city as a place brimming with creative possibilities. In his talk for Nuart Plus, “The Pretty Vacant”, Erik will explore our “persistent affection for the vacant and unfilled” through a discussion of presence and absence as interrelated forces in our cityscape that shape the production and erasure of the work that thrives and fades on the walls of our cities.
