FREE THE BILLBOARD

Filed under: Poland — Tags: , , , , , — WoMe @ 17:52

The outbreak of street art, graffitis, tags and visual vandalism coincides without doubt with the expansion
of advertising and branding over the public space. It is the appropriation of public space by big business that
stimulates the need to reconquer it. While outdoor media companies are looking for new spaces to invade
citizens are denied the possibility to visually and publicly communicate their needs, opinions, interests.
Even if not mature or politically aware in nature the inscriptions on these two billboards that were left empty
for a mere couple of weeks illustrate this process well enough.
