Ads vs. Urban Environment

Advertisment confuse every day our choises exalting qualities that doesn’t exist and creating a sort of shame world. Today, in a moment of financial insecurity, we must discover the real value and authenticity of what we have and we need. (BR1)

Italian street artist BR1 just came up with a new, inspiring and very critical street installation, presenting crumpled poster ads destroying a window of a Berlin bus shelter. This installation is not vandalism in the first place, it’s much more a creative metaphor trying to get to the bottom of today’s advert-society. It illustrates the everyday fight between ads and urban environment and it is also using a certain humorous remark and wink, what makes it a simple, but effective piece of urban artwork.

In my eyes, it’s a controversial message of a movement that wants to shape the city in their own way, without being bothered by uncountable adverts on the streets and everywhere else. What do you think?
