NUART FIGHT CLUB 2014

Fight Club is an alcohol fuelled panel debate held at a local pub. The intent being to loosen the tongues, morals and attitudes of artists, panellists and audience alike.
This years fight club was hosted by Eirik Knudsen with participants Evan Pricco, Managing Editor of Juxtapoz, Rj Rushmore, founder of Vandalog blog and activist and interventionist based artists Maismenos (PT) and Mathieu Tremblin (FR).

This year’s Nuart Plus program tackled the two ends of the street art-continuum, “safe murals” on the one hand and street art and activism on the other. While activism was an essential part of the early street art scene, we have over the last decade or so seen a gradual gravitation towards large scale council/institution and sponsor approved murals. Is this a development we should embrace as a natural development of the scene, or should it be vigorously contested?
