I am always fascinated with how creative resistance tactics resurface and share commonalities with the actions of the past decades. A prime example is the fake New York Times paper that the Yes Men and the Anti-Advertizing Agency distributed in 2008 that shared similar tactics with the New York Crimes paper that Gran Fury /ACT UP New York distributed in 1989. When I first saw the clip of the Glitter Bomb actions I immediately thought of the work of the Biotic Baking Brigade that have targeted a long list of people, including anti-gay hatemongers.The performative aspect of both projects are contagious and critique those in power while embracing tactical media and direct action. To view one of the BBB classic “pie-in-the face” stunts, check out the short clip below.
Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled art fairs, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
