Die Adbuster von Brandalism haben zur Klimakonferenz in Paris 600 Werbeplakate mit ehrlicheren Motiven von über 80 Streetartists (unter anderem die großartigen Paul Insect und Ron English) ersetzt. Großartig!
The United Nations 21st 'Conference of Parties' meeting taking place this December is supposed to agree a global agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Yet in 20 years of UN climate change talks, global emissions have risen by 63%. Increasingly, these talks are dominated by corporate interests. This year's talks in Paris are being held at an airport and sponsored by an airline. Other major polluters include energy companies, car manufacturers and banks. Brandalism aims to creatively expose this corporate greenwashing.
Over 600 works of art denouncing the multinational control of the climate negotiations during the COP 21, have installed yesterday in Parisian advertising space, upstream of the Summit of Nations United, which starts Monday. Despite the state of emergency banning any gathering, following the attacks of 13 November in Paris, Brandalism project […] conducted with Parisian activists, has placed throughout the
city hundreds of unauthorized artwork. These posters emphasize the links between advertising, consumerism, dependence on fossil fuels and climate change.
The works of art were placed into advertising space owned by JCDecaux - one of the largest advertising companies outside and official sponsor of the negotiations of the COP 21.
