Brandalism Take Over 100 UK Billboards


Environmental activist groups from the ‘Brandalism’ network have installed over 100 parody car advert posters on billboards and bus stops in England and Wales. The guerilla artworks featuring brands such as Range Rover, Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, Citroen, Lamborghini and Vauxhall were installed without permission in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, London and Exeter.

The billboard posters criticise the car industry for misleading adverts that have driven up demand for polluting vehicles and private car use – resulting in increased carbon emissions from road transport and worsening air pollution and congestion in towns and cities.

“Car adverts promote private car ownership as a status symbol. Themes of power, success and social status are mixed with exotic locations and empty roads to promote a myth of freedom and mobility. The resulting problems of traffic congestion, worsening air pollution and climate breakdown are left out of these glitzy ads.

Outdoor advertising billboards are used to promote new cars to motorists stuck in traffic. It’s absurd.

Our towns and cities have become so dominated by private cars that we’re struggling to implement sustainable alternatives as the health and social costs mount. The active promotion of polluting vehicles through advertising campaigns isn’t helping the situation. We need a cultural shift away from cars,”
  • Peter Marcuse from Brandalism said.
Over 30 international artists including Paul Insect, Jimmy Cauty, street artist Dr.D, Fokawolf, satirist Darren Cullen, Matt Bonner and Michelle Tylicki created 45 different artwork designs.

About quality, prices… and signatures


Blog post from my new website. I made it because I needed to link to something that explained why art is so expensive :)

After much consideration I have decided to make a website for the Katharsisdrill project. The main reason is that the Phill from GCHQ album has been printed and I needed a place to sell it, the second reason is that I wanted the artworks to be more easily available – even when some of the networks, that I have used, have been down. Until now the project has only existed on several different decentralised platforms such as Diaspora, Mastodon, Hubzilla and Hive/Steem, so it sort of made sense to have one storage and download option that I controlled myself.

I will of course continue to post on as many platforms as I can manage, and this site will simply be where the high resolution files will be placed, and where you can buy books and prints to support my work.

The shop will feature whatever I can come up with, but for now it will be possible to buy the first Phill from GCHQ album and signed prints.

I hope you can cope with the glossy WordPress design. I have decided not to design a whole new CMS this time, but just roll with the mainstream.

Link to the first blog post of the site that is practically identical to this post :)
I finally stopped nitpicking the design of my new Wordpress based homepage. From now this place: katharsisdrill.art, will be where I catalogue my art. I do not necessarily expect there to be a lot of commenting and such, but I have left the possibility open on the blogposts so people outside of my usual circles can add their opinon too.

And then there's a shop so I can direct people there if they want a copy of the first Phill from GCHQ album.

Cheer!

So... today I am having a book launch reception in Copenhagen inner city where Phill from GCHQ will be presented to the astonished public (mainly my drunken friends). I have used the last two weeks on creating a Katharsisdrill website, that is almost finished. The whole collection of artworks will be there and it sports a web-shop! So from now on it should be possible to buy comics and arty things with a simple credit card.

The windows are adorned with Katharsisdrill art, so people can stand in the street, drink their beers and enjoy the fuck finger of Zeus. It is after all a corona event.

Copenhagen is grey and rainy, but the weather forecast says extreme rain and possibly thunder at about six... we start at five. That's wonderful Copenhagen for you. (The not so rainy, but still grey photo of a street was from yesterday.

Lolwut. There is hope, in academia there is hope. I do wonder though if they will be swamped with applications.

[Money for nothing: German university offers 'idleness grants' - Indolence project is serious look at societal values of success versus sustainability, says Hamburg arts college

German university is offering “idleness grants” to applicants who are seriously committed to doing sweet nothing.](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/aug/20/bone-idle-german-university-offers-grant-for-best-inactivity?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other)

The University of Fine Arts in Hamburg advertised three €1,600 scholarship places on Wednesday to applicants from across Germany. The applicants can submit their anonymous pitches until 15 September and will have to convince a jury that their chosen area of “active inactivity” is particularly impressive or relevant.

The application form consists of only four questions: What do you not want to do? For how long do you not want to do it? Why is it important not to do this thing in particular? Why are you the right person not to do it

Sea creatures: the driftwood sculptures bringing joy to Australian beaches during the pandemic – in pictures | Art and design | The Guardian

Artist Pete Rush impulsively made a simple horse sculpture on a Terrigal beach from natural materials – the response from locals was so positive, it inspired him to create a seaside menagerie that includes horses and megafauna. Rush doesn’t use any wire or string in his work, just driftwood, flax and seaweed, and he tries not to disturb natural vegetation. To avoid attracting a crowd of onlookers during a time of physical distancing, he works mostly at night. ‘In the end, it’s a bit of fun in shit times,’ the Central Coast artist says of his sculptures, many of which are reclaimed by the ocean

Recently read about the haymarket affair and wanted to make some pieces with my favourite quotes from the 8 anarchists who were unjustly tried & convicted.
