Subway Vandalism Or Art? Project Draws Mixed Reviews in Sweden…

According to news reports, transportation authorities in Stockholm will seek restitution from Konstfack—University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design, just south of the city, for vandalism to a subway car that was apparently carried out by a student as part of an art project.

For his graduation thesis last spring, Magnus Gustafsson presented a two-minute film featuring footage of a black-clad figure defacing the interior of a train car with graffiti, a Konstfack spokeswoman, Mabel Selin, told The Chronicle.

It is estimated he caused $12,000 worth of damage.
