Radical Jesters – A Film with 11 pranksters, provocateurs, culture jammers, and Situationists


(Youtube Direktprankster, via Wooster)

„Radical Jesters – A Film with 11 pranksters, provocateurs, culture jammers, and Situationists“ ist eine Doku von Tim Jackson, in dem in Interviews 11 Culture Jammer und Prankster zur Sprache kommen, die erklären, wie sie öffentlichen Raum benutzen, um subversive Botschaften zu verbreiten (oder auch einfach Unsinn zu machen). Einige von ihnen hatte ich schon hier auf Nerdcore, zum Beispiel Improv Everywhere, Alan Abel oder Ron English und das beste: Der Film kann komplett auf der Website zur Doku angesehen werden.
