Power, when conceived of as constitutive of the public sphere, as inherent in the categorisations and legalities which influence our reading, allows us to understand how a city is also a textual economy.Street Art is a fundamental, transgressive, part of this economy. Physically it appropriates, dislodges, superimposes and subverts.Some essential services would stay connected, but almost all residential suburbs would be cut off.The City said in a statement that total water storage had decreased by 1.1%.Cape Town – Day zero can be expected as soon as April 29, 2018, after high water usage by Cape Town residents over the past week, the City of Cape Town said on Tuesday.

We begin to re-style our streets, to customize our concrete confines.
