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.
With his international vision, Jordan Seiler proposed a time of discussion around the contract that the City of Besançon has signed with the billboard companies, to better understand the ins and outs of these hundreds of billboards that we pass in front of every day.
