Learn about Culture Jamming with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.It is increasingly in the media, but what exactly is culture jamming and how does it work? Culture jamming is a form of protest in which advertisements and other media messages are re-arranged or parodied in humorous or disturbing ways. The term covers a range of practices, including sabotaging billboards, spoofing well-known ads, and hoaxing the mainstream media. The purpose of culture jamming is to expose the reality behind corporate spin and to reclaim the media and public spaces from the influence of powerful corporations. Just as radio ´´jammers” interrupt broadcasts with their own messages, culture jammers disrupt the everyday flow of the mainstream media by proposing alternative meanings. The term culture jamming was first coined in the mid-1980s by members of Negativland: an experimental band from San Francisco.

Learn about the idea that everyone has 15 Minutes of Fame with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Commenting on the increasingly fleeting nature of celebrity, in 1968 artist Andy Warhol quipped: ´´In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. In a twenty first-century world of reality TV and YouTube, it appears Warhol’s prediction has come true. The changing nature of celebrity over time is an interesting backdrop to today’s short-lived fame. In the Middle Ages, only the monarchy and high aristocracy could claim to have anything like what we would call fame today. But with the absence of mass communication, most people did not even know what the king looked like. The imprint of his head on coins did not need to bear any likeness to reality because representation of power was seen as more important than any recognition in appearance.
