Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

Join Pedro Inoue from Adbusters as he discusses photography, art, activism, and publishing in conjunction with the magazines on view in Objects of Desire: Photography and the Language of Advertising.

Cofounded by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz in Vancouver in 1989, Adbusters pioneered the phenomenon of “culture jamming,” in which the techniques of conventional print advertising are used to critique, subvert, and challenge the hegemony of large corporations. It features often-disturbing spoof ads alongside left-leaning articles on a wide range of political and social issues—including animal rights, climate change, and nuclear proliferation—and regularly solicits submissions and ideas from its readers.

This program is best enjoyed via the Zoom desktop application. The session will be recorded for internal archival purposes only. Attendees’ mics and cameras will not be activated.
