Since 2001, the art on the streets of Buenos Aires reflected the Argentinean socio-political and economic crisis and its subsequent recovery. Images proposed by street art imposed a break up with neo-liberal culture by fracturing the sign: first, through walls flooded with graffiti, interventions, and stencils denouncing the system, and then, through huge murals, an alternative aesthetic to the capitalization of the city reflected in advertising and mass media. Argentinean street art is conceived as a revolution.
