John Fekner’s Cash for Clunkers

August 9, 2009

Cash-For-Clunkers-gasolinic-era.jpg

John Fekner just sent me a link to a great photo collection he recently put up of his stenciled car husks. John started painting slogans such as “Decay” on the side of abandoned cars in Queens and the South Bronx in the early 80s. This simple act de-naturalized the collapse of these neighborhoods, reminding everyone that this was not some foregone conclusion, but the results of specific policies and actions of city officials. Check out all the images HERE.
