Mapping Graffiti in Berlin

12 September 2014 by Tara Murphy

Berlin is often considered a mecca for graffiti and street artists from around the world. The prevalence of graffiti in what is, by all accounts, a very low-crime, low-poverty city flips common attitudes toward the practice on their ends. The posh Charlottenburg and the punk hub of Kreuzberg are both draws for some of the biggest names in street art despite largely different demographics. Put into a geographical context, the graffiti in Berlin reveals a cultural acquiescence toward the practice and in some areas an aesthetic and artistic regard for the differentiated “street art.”
