The column ‘Artefacts & Stylite’ that was created in situ by Sebastian Bühler, Timur Lukas, Daniel Man, Maximilian Prüfer and Marco Ziegletti, can be seen as a complementary and therefore colourful column to the wooden column “Styler & Stylite”. The word Artefacts in the title refers to the roots of the artists involved in the graffiti scene. Today, however, they are active without any direct connection to the scene. Like the wooden column, “Artefacts & Stylite” is to be seen as a collective body of work. However, this time’s approach is reminiscent of the attitude to life of the lively scene in the early days of the 1980s, when people used to meet in front of a piece of wall (usually the so-called “Hall of Fames”, where many pictures could be seen), paint it together and listen to music while doing so. In the meantime, the subculture graffiti has arrived in high culture as a natural part of contemporary art. We make this bridge-building clear for Stoa169. For the realisation, we all found ourselves in the Pillar Hall for a day. All those involved, although they had outgrown the spray can, painted here with the can as a graffiti statement for Stoa169.
