Remember graffiti? I mean, real graffiti, before Sprite, Speed Stick, and McDonald’s started putting “dope tags” in their advertisements in an attempt to insert some “wild street style” into their crappy corporate images. We do. Back then we had Barry McGee come to the Walker and help some young anarchists-to-be realize that corporate America’s advertising campaigns are far more offensive than graffiti on the street. When your kid comes home one day saying his guidance counselor said he should bomb trains for a living, you’ll know who to thank.
