Summary

This chapter highlights the (often) anti-establishment feature of street and graffiti art, explaining that many artists within these communities believe there is no contradiction between this element of their creative practice and showing interest in copyright regimes as well as taking commissions, doing merchandising and in general accepting the institutional art market. It also focuses on the selling out dilemma and the so-called paradox of consumerist anti-consumerism. The chapter then draws some similarities between the graffiti subculture and the advertising world.
