John Lennon – Conflict Graffiti

John Lennon is Associate Professor at the University of South Florida. His book project, Conflict Graffiti, follows the global roots and routes of graffiti in areas experiencing war, poverty, and natural disasters. He is in the initial stages of this project that will take him to numerous geographical regions to investigate, photograph, and theoretically analyze graffiti in a particular area and context (its roots) before teasing out the ways that the form itself speaks and is interpreted by a global audience (its routes). While Lennon’s talk will touch on his overarching thoughts on graffiti, he will specifically speak about his findings of revolutionary graffiti in recent trips to Beirut, Lebanon and Cairo, Egypt.
