Subvertising Norway is a form of civil disobedience that seeks to reclaim public space by replacing outdoor advertising with art. It is founded on the basic principle that the visual realm in public space belongs to everyone, so no-one should be able to own it.
The presentation at the placemaking Pils introduced the background behind this 'protest art' movement; its various forms and functions; and, perhaps most importantly, the tools and know-how to do it yourself.
Subvertising Norway is a non-profit network of artists, activists, and designers dedicated to questioning who has the power and authority to communicate messages and create meaning in public space through acts of creative subversion and art-based activism.
Subvertising Norway's talk was part of the Placemaking Pils winter edition in 2020 hosted by Nabolagshager. We had the pleasure to co-host this event with our partners from GrowLab and our PlaceCity partners Superwien, PlaceCity Vienna Floridsdorf, and from Placemaking Europe as part of our PlaceCity project. Placemaking Pils is a tool developed by Nabolagshager and is part of the Placemaking Europe toolbox. Download your free manual to get started on organising your own Placemaking Pils.
