    STUDIA DRAMATICA - Issue no. 1 / 2010  
  Article:   GET UP!.

  Abstract:  The visual stimuli urban dwellers are given when they go out in the street are far more complex than what lies on billboards and commercial posters. The alternative universe represented by street art is one of the most vivid and non-discriminatory forms of artistic practice in today’s society, especially as it allows for a more direct relation between art producers and receivers. This article focuses on how street art can turn common city dwellers into active participants to the phenomenon, the line from observation to interaction being much more fragile than with other artistic forms.

Keywords: street art, urban walls, active receiver, passive producer, public signification codes
