We have a soft spot for street art, so we would like to remind/introduce you to the official of Trespass: A History Of Uncommissioned Urban Art — the fantastic book by “WoosterCollective” founders Marc and Sara Schiller.
What makes Trespass different from other street art books is that it’s not a street art book. It’s a book that certainly includes street art and graffiti but goes beyond that to also address performance, protest, sculpture, and the whole goal of the book was to really look at the context of street art in a much larger historical perspective.”
~ Marc Schiller
Trespass comes from Taschen, easily the most visually ambitious publisher past couple of years, whom you may recall from the superb Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made. Which tells us that the book is an absolute visual gem and photographic treat of the most indulgent kind.
From Guatemalan guerrilla gardeners to icons like Banksy and Barry McGee, Trespass is as much an exhaustive compendium of compelling artwork as it is a modern manifesto for activism, democracy, and freedom of speech.
