Nuart Festival is one of the world’s most recognised street art festivals, and the only one of its kind, being set in the context of Stavanger; a small, wealthy city on the south-west coast of Norway.
Serving as the catalog for the 2015 version of the festival and its accompanying academic program Nuart Plus, this publication consists of event programme, artist profiles, artist interviews, and critical essays. The program is themed around Situationism & Play, and explores how punk, graffiti and street art have been affected by increasing commercial and academic interest in these movements.
2015 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the Nuart Festival. As a commemoration of the years passed, I took a series of snapshots of “classic” Nuart pieces; old, forgotten, fading, or generally overlooked artworks around the city; and scattered them throughout the publication. A rusty, overgrown Pøbel made the cover page.
As is tradition, the printing was handled by the local newspaper press.
