Cobbled streets, white wooden houses, a cathedral of modest proportions dating back to 1150, impressive views over the water and a colossal bridge that links the islands together. It’s Stavanger in a nutshell.
When street art emerged at the turn of the twenty-first century, it was revolutionary in the sense that it concerns art that is not intended to end up in a white cube – typically a place where an admission fee is charged, where you have to keep your distance to the works exhibited, where attendants keep an eye on you and where taking pictures may not be allowed. Instead, it is art meant for anyone to enjoy without restriction.
‘‘Get outta here, a page full of cat pictures? How dare you come up with that and how do you think you'll get away with it?’’ Well yes, that's what I've been asking myself too... On a World Wide Web that is ceaselessly inundated with honey-sweet and quasi-comical cat content, this contribution can just as well be omitted, right? Or cannot at all be missed? Who shall say?
