Counter-Campaigning Workshop

Pre-Election Public Campaign Art Interventions

Should artists' works pick a political side in the upcoming elections or do they stand above all sides? By hacking or commenting on messages of policital parties, do you generate attention for the object that's commented upon thereby risking misinterpretation? What forms of art interventions are the most effective in public campaigning?

This day long action-packed workshop - just before the start of the Dutch city-council elections - will allow participants to be introduced to the theme by experienced art and design practitioners as well as experts in the activist and political scene. Together we will formulate new messages, produce and distribute our messages prior to the upcoming elections. During the workshop participants, artists and theoreticians will brainstorm and create quick campaign reactions, and distribute them in the city.

Organized by design collective Foundland (Ghalia Elsrakbi, current DAI student Lauren Alexander and Dirk Vis).
