Contemporary Lynx Magazine 1(7)2017
ON ART IN A PUBLIC SPACE
Why is the issue so special?
* Hand-painted cover.
The street artist Sławek ZBIOK Czajkowski hand-paint 2,964 magazine covers, which comprise the issue. He transformed rows of blank white PVC sheets into striking works of colour. Every sheet was a component of a larger collective image — a 16 x 11 metre painting titled, ‘The World Is A Mess.’
* The topic of the issue
[…] this time we have turned our attention to street art and art occurring in various forms in a broadly understood public space. We would like to ask what public space is at the moment, we will think about the relations of street art and the net, and how artists engage directly in current political events, supporting protests, manifestations or simply start a discussion on the shape of the surrounding reality — say Editors -in-Chief.
