There are several people who are pleased to decorate the walls of their home with family photos. By analogy, pictures of homeless people should appear in the street. Especially because in their physical reality they cannot be there as it has been a criminal offence since 2018.
During my walk I am going to place my original and unique posters of my homeless fellows at points which are important for the represented people for some reason. The no-name and neglected people will have a face and eyes that passers-by who otherwise tend to turn away can look into.
What is it that we call attractive and what is it that we regard unpleasant or disturbing in the street?
Both street artists and the homeless spend their days in the streets either drawing, creating or begging because they want to make something visible for as many people as possible.
The categories ‘tolerated’, ‘supported’ and ‘prohibited’ exist both in the world of street art and homelessness. If an attractive fire-wall mural, graffiti or any other streeartefactum can become a tourist attraction that the city is proud of, can an attractive homeless person and their image become like that?
