Billboard Takeover in Toronto

Nach dem Brandalism Projekt in England kommt hier gleich noch ein schönes Billboard Takeover, diesmal in Toronto mit insgesamt 35 übernommenen Werbeflächen im öffentlichen Raum. U.a. mit den Künstlern OX und Ludo. Hinter dem Projekt steckt cARTographyTO.

These structures are billboards masquerading as sources of useful public information. When you look at the pillars, it’s hard to find the maps, and this goes against the City’s own public space guidelines. How could City Hall allow this to happen? Beyond mere visual pollution, these pillars are a safety hazard. And Astral’s influence on our city is a public insult and embarrassment – more power has been given to those who already have the loudest voices, to the detriment of all who use these spaces.
