The BBC have reported today, that in the run up to the CP21 UN Summit on climate change, more than 600 anti-corporation artworks have been installed in advertising spaces across Paris.

The Brandalism campaign “brand + vandalism” has claimed responsibility for the unauthorised art, stating that it was to: “highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change”.

Prominent corporate sponsors of the talks have been targeted by the posters, which say that they are “part of the problem” and placed in spaces owned by JC Decaux, one of the talks’ sponsors who owns most ad spaces throughout Europe. Many feature world leaders that are known to be attending the talks in Paris.
