Brandalism is an international collective of artists that challenge corporate power in public space around the world.
Intervening into ad spaces that usually celebrate consumption, Brandalism use ‘subvertising’ as a lens through which we can view the intersectional social & environmental justice issues that capitalism creates.
Corporate advertising influences every aspect of our modern lives: from how we feel about ourselves; our bodies; our understandings of gender, race and class; through to our perceptions of others and the world we live in. Advertising doesn’t simply sell us products – it shapes our expectations of how meaning should be produced in life.
Building resistance and resilience to this corporate power is at the heart of the culture wars in the 21st century. So with nothing more than high-vis jackets, special keys, and shared creative principles we hack spaces and places to hold corporate power to account and dream of a world beyond capitalism.
Our interventions, exhibitions and workshops aim to agitate, educate and facilitate those who want to challenge corporate power.Read Our Manifesto
