Hi Sonia,

You could use 'The destruction of art: Iconoclasm and vandalism since the
French Revolution' by Dario Gamboni as background reading. It gives a good
view on the relationship between contemporary destructions of art and older
forms of iconoclasm in Europe and the United States.

Good luck!

Best, Rola

sonia,

check out the british artduo AVI. they made art (or design) out of 
altering public symbols and billboards  - not defacing them, just 
changing meaning by replacing or adding a few words. their art 
appears to be quite solipsistic as no one really pays attention to 
anything but the image...

i have no time to google (it is a verb now, right?) for you but if 
you fail to find any information i'll be happy to photocopy an 
interview with them from 'transcript' (that excellent scottish 
journal that ceased to exist for unknown reasons!!) and mail it to 
you. (transcript volume 3 issue 1) it contains some b/w images.

you have probably heard of: http://www.space-invaders.com/ , which is 
considered to be filth and graffiti by cities who do not apreciate 
this artform.

ciao,

sebastian.

Sonia
when i was a young boy in Sydeny there was a group called bugga Up. They 
engaged in defacing billbaords in a very imagantive way. Iseem to 
remeber a book or something about them
