an evening of film, discussion and making things!
A person is faced with 1004 adverts on average everyday telling them that they are not good enough, that they need to consume in order to be happy. Subvertising alters the message of advertising to make a statement against mass consumerism, war, etc. It is a way of reclaiming public space and voicing an alternative message to passers by.
Come along to watch footage of subvertising in action, make your own stencils and the such like... Bring tools, paint, enthusiasm and ideas if you can!
Part of the workshop will be stencil making. See http://lmv.hu/node/3600 for a description of how to do this on your computer or http://el.blogsport.de/motiverstellung-fuer-schablonen/ for it in German.
