NO-AD is an anti-consumerism project organised by the artist Vermibus.
The goal of the project is to reduce the advertisement impacts citizens are exposed to, by removing the advertising graphic.
Based on the project Buy Nothing Day, founded by the artist Ted Dave, where participans abstain from buying anything in 24 hours.
Vermibus goes a step backwards in the consumption process, reducing the advertisement impact by releasing the space intended to show it and leaving them empty.
The team formed by two photographers and two video cameras documented the whole ten-hour intervention, where more than 30 posters were removed from one of the most consumer areas of Berlin, altough these spaces remained free of advertisement for several days due to the lack of stock of the advertiser “Wall Decaux”
