In murals depicting prominent figures as martyrs AFK has reconnected the emerging form of street-art to art's ability to maintain our relation to the sacred. Cannily drawing on ambiguities concerning victimhood, pleasure, and mob logic AFK has made headlines, and have reignited debates concerning the place of street-art in the public domain and in the space of arts. Inscriptions is happy to present a series of public artworks by AFK in this issue.
