MTV Clutch Blog Q&A: DB Burkeman Is Stuck On Stickers

“For DB Burkeman, stickers are those little markers that document our culture. Whether it’s the first “Watch Out! Punk is Coming!” sticker slapped up on the Lower East Side in late 1970s or a 1930s R. Stanton Avery silk-screened political bumper sticker, they capture a point in time that somehow defined American culture. So it only makes sense that Burkeman, along with his partner, Monica LoCascio, got to researching the art of stickers and churned out Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. The 300-page book traces the visual and social history of the medium, and explores the relationship artists have with their pieces and how they communicate with viewers.”
