“The constant imposition of advertising in front of our eyes is an oppressive, dictatorial and violent act. Subvertising reacts to this visual pollution with an equally violent and direct aesthetic, without asking for permission or waiting for consensus. Removing, replacing and defacing advertising is an act of civil disobedience that is both legally and morally defensible”
— Hogre

Subvertising is the subversion of advertising. During this workshop we will work with Vyvian Raoul to learn the tactics and techniques of subvertising, particularly relating to property and the rights to the city.

This workshop shows how subvertising offers a creative way to rewrite the narrative about the housing market in the streets where gentrification operates. Outdoor advertising is the most emblematic form of consumerist propaganda. It privatises public spaces with the intention of conditioning mass behaviours and imposing specific (commercial) narratives. How can we untangle those narrations? And how can we take over those spaces subtracted from the public realm for private interests?

During the second part of the workshop in the fall 2020 at Supermarkt we will work with StealThisPoster and Kunstblock to learn tactics and techniques of subvertising related to aggressive corporations in the context of housing eviction.

This workshop is a co-production between the Disruption Network Lab & Supermarkt Berlin and it is part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
