6 Within the framework of billboard and poster art, it is perhaps only the Art Invades and Appropriates 31 (mostly anonymous) poster works produced by activist groups in the 1980s that truly escaped this dilemma and evaded complicity with the marketing system of the art world. The model provided by early Soviet art was important for the move into the streets because it denied the notion of fine art altogether and privileged forms such as advertising and propaganda that were felt to be accessible to a wider audience.

In appropriating billboards or poster hoardings, artists are able to intervene in and redirect the world of signs, opening it up to alternative meanings and inflections. 58 The difference between these works and consumer advertisements is that the disruptions brought by the latter tend on the whole to work as welcome distractions or even minor irritations rather than as direct challenges to the status quo. While Lefebvre’s notion of Art Invades and Appropriates 47 the situational and the Situationist notion of detournement chimes neatly with the interventions made by artists such as Kruger and Levine, it also fits with the interventions of activist art, a form of cultural terrorism largely identified with American groups such as Gran Fury (AIDS), the Guerrilla Girls (Gender equality in the art world) or Adbusters (campaigning against and subverting commercial advertising).

This, in turn, has led to a new subjectivity, and has produced an ethos which respects the importance of intuition in the transactions of daily life, resulting in a fluid and malleable management of words that makes reading a far more open and creative proposition for the viewer. 34 For instance, a work such as Stephan Sagmeister’s poster for AIGA at Cranbrook in 1999 – in which the copy is manipulated to look as if painfully gouged into human skin – emerges as a fusion of informational graphics and the sort of self-mutilating body art practised by Gina Payne.
