streetart in the backyard.

Is this the place streetart belongs to? In the backyard of  “a Disneyland of culture” (Irit Rogoff @), the so-called ‘Street Art Passage’  in Vienna`s MQ, you find a graffiti from Mandarina Brausewetter (up to November, 19), who was the first woman creating stencil graffitis in public space in Vienna.  Streetart in it`s origin is open to the public and reaches also recipients that do not belong to an art-interested-scene. Streetart means  communication and interaction. But the fact that streetart`s in the backyard in an exhibition area like MQ in Vienna, leaves me asking for the reason of its non-exposed place.
Mandarina Brausewetter is responsible for the artwork of ‘Betonblumen’ the Street Art Passage`s magazine since 2008, she`s running her store ‘The Hot Dogs’ in Vienna, selling her prints on clothes and creating artwork for  interiors. Her work was shown together with Banksy`s in an exhibition in London and is currently on the run as part of ‘Urban Art Agenda’.
