Plakatomania

Not a word I've heard of before ... but derived from the greek, I can see where it's coming from. A site and video on You Tube, well worth a visit! Extract from website below. Scroll down to the bottom of her page for the Video link. Visiting artists, I defy you not to be inspired! Thought of you Jafabrit.

Plakatomania
To go out on the street and make something spontaneous in the moment,based on a few materials found on the streets. That is what the artist Gosia Hejnat did in the video installation Plakatomania, filmed by the video artist Paul Prendergast. In the movie it is shown how sheintensively makes new pictures out of old posters, and tear them of thewall to take them home.

I remember my student days when we would stage what was called a "happening." Thank you for sharing this video with us. It's "happenin'" all over again!
