The Contradictions of Urban Art constitutes an inquiry into the dynamics of artistic creativity that transgresses the boundaries of public art as well as into the inventions expressed by the practical activities and academic research focused on contemporary urban spaces. It demonstrates how the multilingualism of art and science raises the temperature of discussions concerning the city. It advises that what we call city art should include outdoor events, prose and poetry.
