  • To Live Without Dead Time - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    live without dead time means to embody a great refusal to find pleasure in struggle to transform every moment of existence into a repudiation of the consumerist nightmare and an affirmation of revolutionary possibility A semester a year a decade without Big Macs Frappucinos and World of Warcraft but overflowing with midnight adventures of blackspotted billboards guerrilla gardening and spectacular synchronized global memewar actions Imagine if a huge number of us start living in this way turning daily life itself into a form of resistance that re enchants the city and reawakens the promise of a people s insurrection The way forward is through this kind of radical play FROM Adbusters 97 Post Anarchism Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Paul Gilding David Graeber Also In This Magazine Why so bored Here s a tiny confession I m bored What am I bored of Everything Blogs books music art business ideas politics tweets movies science math technology but more than that the spirit October 1 2014 Sacré bleu What ever happened to love in the afternoon March 24 2014 Is There Such a Thing as Human Nature Ethan Watters unravels the Western Mind October 25 2013

  • Toxic Culture - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    shuddering halt Lasn declared On the rubble of the old culture we will build a new one with a non commercial heart and soul Since Zola however mental environmentalism has been stuck in a philosophical morass To claim that advertising is metaphorically mental pollution is one thing namely an easily dismissible rhetorical flourish To say that advertising is literally a kind of pollution and that TV commercials and highway billboards are more closely related to toxic sludge than to speech is another matter entirely And while mental environmentalists have always tried to make the latter argument they have more often been forced to retreat to the former Where is the evidence that advertising is a species of pollution Isn t it obvious that a corporate slogan is nothing but glorified commercialized speech Into this difficult question has stepped one of the greatest living philosophers the eccentric Michel Serres who has written the inaugural philosophical work of the mental environmentalist movement Malfeasance Appropriation Through Pollution is a radical reconception of pollution that cements its primal relation to advertising The big idea of this recently translated book is that animals humans included use pollution to mark claim and appropriate territory through defiling it and that over time this appropriative act has evolved away from primitive pollution urine and feces to hard pollution industrial chemicals and finally to soft pollution the many forms of advertising Let us define two things and clearly distinguish them from one another Michel Serres writes first the hard pollutants and second the soft By the first I mean on the one hand solid residues liquid gases emitted throughout the atmosphere by big industrial companies or gigantic garbage dumps the shameful signature of big cities By the second tsunamis of writings signs images and logos flooding rural civic public and natural spaces as well as landscapes with their advertising Even though different in terms of energy garbage and marks nevertheless result from the same soiling gesture from the same intention to appropriate and are of animal origin Michel Serres is the first to philosophically ground mental environmentalism upon a unified theory of pollution that explains how advertisements are actually a breed of industrial pollutant Lacking this mental environmentalists have hitherto skirted this central problem by taking up Zola s contention that advertising is blameworthy for its role in making us into consumers The commercial media are to the mental environment what factories are to the physical environment Kalle Lasn and I wrote in Adbusters 90 A factory dumps pollution into the water or air because that s the most efficient way to produce plastic or wood pulp or steel A TV station or website pollutes the cultural environment because that s the most efficient way to produce audiences While this argument was true in Zola s time and remains so today and Serres too makes a similar point in his book Serres has done something even more profound He has shown why one cannot be an environmentalist without also
