Watching My Name Go By
1976 Graffiti documentary

Check this vintage BBC graffiti documentary called Watching My Name Go By – it’s a straight blast from the past. This film will show you what NYC used to look like before it became the gentrified place it is today. Before the authorities cracked down on street art, calling it a crime and erasing it from public view. Once again, you can see that most adults are just not connected to youth culture – and today there’s still a battle raging to define graffiti as art, and not vandalism. I love hearing these young artists describe their work. Despite all of the efforts of authorities, graffiti has not died, it has multiplied!
