Last month, pioneering Hip-Hop documentarian Martha Cooper debuted her newest publication Name Tagging at the OBEY Pop-Up Shop. Covering the prevalent notion of tagging with stickers once used primarily in the corporate environment, we took the opportunity to visit with Martha Cooper regarding her book, her contributions to graffiti and Hip-Hop and the importance of her getting involved early on as a photographer and the difficulty current photographers face.
Am I like super late because I’ve never heard of Martha Cooper? Oh okay according to her wiki page she wrote Subway Art which I’ve definitely read but never owned a copy. Okay so I have heard of Ms. Cooper. Anyway check out the video above nice little short on the phenomenon of tagging and whether or not it is a viable form of art.
thanks to beast.
