Bomb It, directed by Jon Reiss, investigates the subversive art form of graffiti. Through interviews (Taki 183, Cornbread, Zephyr, Revs, Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, Revok, and Mear One) and guerrilla footage of painters in action, the film tells the story of graffiti from its origins in cave paintings through its explosion in New York City in the 1970s and ‘80s, and samples the current state of graffiti globally. 2007, video, 93 minutes.

"Nicholas Blechman is art director of The New York Times Book Review. For this lecture, he discusses his highly regarded publication Nozone from its inception as an underground self-published 'zine to its present incarnation. Nozone looks into a complicated and traumatic future of prophesies, doomsdays, conspiracies, calamities, Ice Ages, and potential revolutions. Within these messages and events is a universal realization: The Earth our children inherit will almost certainly be nothing like the one we currently inhabit. Presented in conjunction with AIGA Minnesota."
