It is 1983 in Munich, the walls are grey and bare, marked only by a few political slogans and the odd declaration of love. Then, suddenly, abstract sign language, peculiar characters and cryptic combinations of letters begin to appear, their meaning a puzzle to all who chance upon them.
The pieces begin to spread across the city and mark the start of the graffiti movement in Germany and throughout Europe.
Photographic archives, from Defence lawyer Konrad Kittl and anthropology academic Peter Kreuzer reveal the first layer of graffiti in Munich: experiments with colour and form; unprecedented and free from rules or preconceptions.
