After numerous collaborations with OX, the artist Jordan Seiler has offered you the opportunity to discuss his artistic and anti-advertising practice. Advocating civil disobedience as a form of resistance to the omnipresence of sales imagery, Jordan Seiler invited you to formulate concrete proposals through collective discussions and reflections.
Based on the previous day’s discussions, participants tried their hand at creating non-commercial posters.
The following week, the group of participants came to place their creations on the billboards, offering new visual proposals that were narrative, poetic, humorous or simply neutral, devoid of advertising messages… Beautiful visual breaks and a superb artivist, creative, collective and supportive intervention in the company of artist Jordan Seiler!
