BROMSTEN – 25 ÅR AV BOMBING & BURNERS

A book by Björn Engberg about a run-down industrial area in the Stockholm suburb Bromsten/Spånga. In 1987 two graffiti artists called Circle and Weird painted a couple of well-hidden concrete walls in the area. By the end of the 80’s every spot in reach was covered with spray paint. When a zero tolerance policy towards graffiti was introduced in Stockholm in the mid 90’s, several attempts was made to clean up the area but new paintings kept appearing. Lately many of the old industrial buildings have been torn down to make room for new apartment buildings, in the meantime the Stockholm City Museum is trying to mark Bromsten’s biggest graffiti painting as a cultural heritage, and thus protecting it from demolition.

BROMSTEN – 25 ÅR AV BOMBING & BURNERS is a documentation over a quarter century of graffiti. It’s also a portrait of a rare site, an oasis of decay in an otherwise well renovated and thoroughly organized city. Apart from photographs by Björn Engberg the book features stories and memories told by local graffiti artists like Circle, Card, Crome, Serw, Rustle/Iano, Astma, Dyre, Sken, Mint, Relik and Cbee, plus a selection of their personal pictures.
