Since 2008 a new, young trend has splashed onto the international art scene: Urban Art. In the meantime Urban Art proponents have conquered museums and galleries commanding high prices for their works. In 2011 the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks presented the internationally regarded exhibition “Urban Art – Graffiti 21”.
From 2013 the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks is to provide a regular platform for Urban Art. Every two years, the European Centre for Art and Industry Culture, will display new and significant positions of art that has developed from graffiti. The first “Urban Art Biennial” is to begin on Sunday 24th March 2013, with stars from the scene in Europe and America.
