Outside the gallery, away from the museum, protest art has found a different relationship to the public. If you have been in Madrid, Berlin or Palma de Mallorca, you might have noticed some guerrilla “advertising” posters in the subway and on the street. They are done by the artist Vermibus, which calls his reworks Vita Propria (My Life) – ‘A critic of aesthetic value of the consumer society’. Using white spirits, the artist brushes away the faces and flesh of the models appearing in the posters as well as brand logos. Once the transformation is complete, he then reintroduces the adverts back into their original context, hijacking the publicity, and its purpose.In our opinion, one of the most interesting activist art project of the recent period.
