Here you go: BLF - Billboard Liberation Front!
It's an advertising company which, for the first time, is dedicated to advertise the real part of the products, being one of the originators of culture jamming, by clearly reclaiming public space.
BLF is not an utopian Agency - they're really active in many places in the States, expecially in San Francisco area.
One of their last campaign has been created against Mc Donald's during the celebration for the 50 years...
Or another one has been called "Bus stop Art installation".
This is not a way of doing counter-culture only by protesting and opposing the ideas of the Multi-Nationals... that's a real alternative medium to advertize the product simply beeing honests.
You can anyway find more material here:
They also sorted out the BLF Manifesto. It's really interesting...please, have a look...you'll find it anyway in their website.
Eh,eh...it's very strange I think that's me, posting a picture like the one on the top, since I study and I work in the field of Media Communication...
But it's common not to be satisfied of what we do and of what we are... ;)

No, don't worry...I'm not trying to make any kind of obscure-campaign to a very cheap and good supermarket...and, most imporant thing...I'm not receiveing any money for it! I just would like to show you a very interestinf exhibition I had the chance to see inside the Design Museum of Copenhagen. It was the reproduction of a real supermarket - so you could even buy something if you wanted - that was selling only very rare products, like... Tollerance, Good Vibes, Commercial Free Space, Clean air...
Well,a lot of useful goods I would say... unfortunately nobody really cares about it...
Anyway travelling through Holland is not that easy...
And here we can have the immagines of what happened to the 2 wild cousins during the trip...
So...here you can see the results after one full day in Amsterdam...compared wit hour lovely faces when we were just arrived at the airport...!
Sorry for my absence guys (well,,I think that nobody ceared, but it's always nice to write...)but I was travelling in Holland the last 5 days.
Holland, what a nice country... much more easy-going and easy to live than Denmark, for sure.
I hadn't time to visit every city indeep, but I visited DenHaag, amsterdam Rotterdam and Utrecht. Not bad to be the first time, isn't it?!
What has really astonished me was the vitality of people, and the funny mess in the streets... something that you wouldn't wait from a north European Country.
The weather has also been quite kind with us (ah, right...I was travelling with my cousin Riccardo), except for the day when we went in Amstrdam...where the rain has never stopped neither for one second to fall down...!
But, still, Amsterdam is really lovely...full of canals...similar to Venice...but more active without doubt! I've loved it!!
