Photo Exhibition "Art Begins in Streets. Art Lives in Streets" by Wilfried Raussert

As part of the the 8th Annual Seminar of the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) "Done with Eurocentrism? Directions, Diversions, and Debates in History and Sociology", Professor Wilfried Raussert brings us the photo exhibition Art Begins in Streets. Art Lives in Streets. The images in this exhibit are momentary glimpses into the street life of cities in the Americas like Lima in Peru, Guadalajara in Mexico, Toronto and Ottawa in Canada, and New York and San Francisco in the USA. The photographs exhibited are snapshots of the momentary encounter of the painted city with the passing dweller, visitor or tourist. They intend to unfold new stories, as street mural art is reframed in a new context of everyday life practice.
