Each One, Teach One
Theory Tuesdays

ODEM, The Stylism Alphabet, 1996

During this Theory Tuesdays session, Rémi Jaccard will be presenting the essay "Stylewriting" by Scum, Cheech H and Techno 169.

Stylewriting is a thorough analysis of the alphabet and its use by graffiti writers. Characterising every letter as well as different forms of putting them together from tag to wildstyle this text gives a very structured overview of American graffiti. The authors – all writers themselves – try to explain the esthetics of style and their approach to it. In a culture usually distrusting theoretical debates, this 1996 essay is a rare exception.

It's encouraged that you read the essay beforehand and the session will be held (mostly) in German.
