This issue of the Palais de Tokyo magazine, a prefiguration of its new formula, accompanies, but above all deepens and unfolds the exhibition “La Bite des termites”. It is an opportunity to investigate, through an updated and very subjective archeology of graffiti, what the creation resulting from urban culture has brought to a history of forms in aesthetic terms, but also conceptual, social and political, thanks to notions such as the construction of identity through collective destruction, subversion in the practices and economies of art, illicit actions, resistance and a certain idealism or romanticism of vandalism.

Contents of this issue:

– Hugo Vitrani, “Il morso delle termiti”: introductory text on the exhibition “La Bite des termites”

– Charlotte Guichard, “Graffiti. Sensitive traces. » : the presence of graffiti in the history of Western art

– Hito Steyerl interviewed by Ingrid Luquet-Gad: interview about her work The City of Broken Windows

– Simon Johannin, “SKKI is the Limit”: meeting with the artist SKKI

– Jérôme Denis and David Pontille, “Le Soin des choses”: interview around the research of these two sociologists on maintenance work, rooted in particular in their investigation into the removal of graffiti in Paris
