    Putting the art back in street art
    I’ve recently spent some time planning a trip to Berlin and I’ve noticed that, on sites like Airbnb, “graffiti” and “street art” function almost as code.

Other hosts, hoping to rent their apartments, laud the colorful street art in the same neighborhood. Of course, in Berlin, the signifier is heightened by the graffiti on the preserved bit of the Berlin Wall. But still, after reading dozens of these kinds of things, I must confess that I was drawn to some of the graffitied neighborhoods in part because of those descriptions, imagining, “it’s something like the Station North of Berlin.”
