The Mucem in Marseille [3]has established one of the most important collections in Europe on graffiti and hip-hop. This collection of nearly 1,500 objects comprises an astonishing assortment of graffiti panels, posters, stickers, sketches, photographs, and videos. These were acquired as part of campaigns of surveys collected in France, Europe and the Maghreb, as close as possible to the places and actors who accompanied the birth and development of the graffiti.
