Hijacking advertising billboards in the 80s (24 pics)




In the 1980s, the collective  Truth in Advertising appeared in the city of Santa Cruz , hijacking the huge posters from billboards with subversive messages. Long before modern street art, these activist artists acted anonymously, not even knowing who exactly was part of the collective. Between critics of the consumer society and political messages, the underground network Truth in Advertising was mostly active between 1980 and 1985. You can find more information on the website of  Bob Stayton , one of the members of the collective. I also strongly recommend you to have a look at the Brandalism project .
