Press accompaniment for “The Spray Can is Mightier Than the Sword”:
“Alexis Zimberg and Nicholas van Beek are traveling the former Soviet Union to document how graffiti is used as a form of protest when other outlets of expression are limited. They explain the dissenting opinions they saw on the walls of the Belarusian capital, where the government has been battling opposition protests.”
