The Kids Are All Right!

NEKO, Madrid
Despite the fact that the issue of advertising using public space to spread commercial messages that in turn have gross negative affects on our society, isn't really being adressed these days, I am heartened to see such a healthy dose of artistic action on the streets that pays no mind to the legal basis upon which these ads come to exist on our streets. The city is ours and the messages we choose to surround ourselves with are a reflection of who we are collectively. We should be ecstatic that citizens take the time and effort to bring us something other.
