This Group Took Over Billboards In Paris to Address Climate Change
Brandalism installed more than 600 pieces in JCDecaux advertising spaces to protest government inaction on our time's most pressing issue
Throughout the streets of Paris, citizens might have noticed something different. Where once stood an advertisement, now the figure of Alice from Alice in Wonderland is sitting with her hands wrapped around a small tank of a poisonous substance. She wears a mask over her face and appears to be inhaling the mysterious material.
The work is one of many that replaced advertisements in the days leading up to the United Nations climate talks in Paris. The initiative was led by Brandalism and attempted to start a conversation about climate talks, politics and public space.
