On Corporate Graffiti

In honour of Public Ad Campaign—which is adbusting abroad today—here is a short documentary I made as part of my masters thesis about illegal billboards and the New York Street Advertising Takeovers.



Last month, dozens of New York artists and activists battled the clutter of consumerism in a guerrilla-style billboard takeover. Mobilized by Jordan Seiler and the Public Ad Campaign, the 24-hour direct action replaced nearly 19,000 square feet of illegal advertising with original, anti-corporate street art.
