40 Künstler, 10 Städte, 365 Anzeigen, 2 Tage: Das ist die Bilanz der diesjährigen Adbusting-Aktion Brandalism 2014. “Brandalism is a revolt against corporate control of the visual realm. It is the biggest anti-advertising campaign in world history and it’s getting bigger. Starting in July 2012 with a small team in a van, Brandalism has grown tenfold to include teams in 10 UK cities skilled up in taking back space. The most recent Brandalism Takeover in May 2014 saw the reclamation of over 360 corporate advertising spaces with hand made original art works submitted by 40 international artists. Following on in the guerilla art traditions of the 20th Century and taking inspiration from Agitprop, Situationist and Street Art movements, the Brandalism project sees artists from around the world collaborate to challenge the authority and legitimacy of commercial images within public space and within our culture. Brandalism has worked with 16 teams of citizens who have been trained in the techniques and tactics of ‘subvertising’ – the art of subverting advertisements; before heading out onto the streets of the UK’s major cities for two days of redecoration.” Via
