Paris 2015 – Brandalism

2. december 2015


.
I dagene op til COP21 har Paris’ gader været vidne til en ganske tankevækkende event, #brandalism, hvor 82 kunstnere på en af konsumerismens helligdage, ‘black friday’, satte i alt 600 plakater op i bybilledet på plakatstandere tilsvarende dem, som belemrer det centrale København.

Mange af dem er så gode, at jeg ville ønske at der kom en samlet udgave deraf. Men jeg har forsøgt at samle en række af de bedste herover – de fleste er hentet fra galleri-siden på www.brandalism.org.uk. De tager meget præcist den corporate greenwash ved hornene, som COP21 til overmål er vidne til i disse dage, og udstiller den ved at viderebearbejde virksomhedernes grafiske identiteter til politiske budskaber. Brandalism skriver derom:

“Despite the state of emergency banning any gathering, following the attacks of 13 November in Paris, the Brandalism project, conducted with Parisian activists, has placed throughout the city hundreds of unauthorised artworks. These posters emphasise the links between advertising, consumerism, dependence on fossil fuels and climate change. We take possession of advertising space because we want to denounce the role that advertising plays in promoting an unsustainable consumerism. The advertising industry feeds our desires for products based on the exploitation of fossil fuels, which have a direct impact on climate change. As for the climate negotiations and side events sponsored by large companies, the outdoor advertising allows more rich to ensure that their voice is heard beyond all others.”
