Paris’s New “Subvertising” Campaign

It’s one thing to say you’re proactively dealing with climate change, and another thing entirely to actually do something about it.

Since the November terrorist attacks in Paris, the City of Light has been under the careful eyes of the world for weeks. More recently, the COP 21, or the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, began in the outskirts of the French capital, and artists took advantage of the organic and ongoing spotlight to give their two cents about big businesses and climate change.

A British group of artists, collectively called Brandalism, have made a name for themselves since they started their work in 2012 by taking over corporate advertising with their own not-so-subliminal messaging.
