This exhibition features revolutionary artists from France, Japan, Russia and Canada. Participants include ChimPom, a unit known for its work themed around landmines and nuclear power, as well as Adbusters, a magazine that has criticized the mass media for inducing people towards consumerism. Each featured artist or group is closely connected to society in their activities, ringing alarm bells against stereotypes and pre-fixed ideas.
