FRI SEPT 6. 14:30–15:00 Vile Films present Subvertiser, a short film on festival artist Dr D (UK) followed by a Q&A

After failing his art GCSE (10th grade in the U.S.) dr.d embarked on a plethora of glamorous jobs including rat catcher; building site labourer; taxi radio controller and burger van man to name a few. In recent years he’s become known as one of the UKs longest running Subvertisers with over 23 years of visual activism on the streets of London and beyond! 

 
From flyposting his own posters to rejigging existing billboards to create new messages, dr.d has been tackling the age old problem that ‘advertising shits in your head’ with equally hilarious and shocking results. His ‘Curfew – Social Cleansing’ posters are so well made that people in Aberdeen asked when the curfew started! With a move into faux street signs and ever more elaborate interventions, dr.d is sure to leave a mark on the city that goes beyond pictures on walls and looks at the core issues of our political class.

14:30–15:00 Vile Films present Subvertiser, a short film on festival artist Dr D (UK) followed by a Q&A

Working over the years as a professional bill sticker and going undercover in hi-vis and subvertising the streets, Dr.D has developed his own brand of sarcasm for his and possibly our own amusement. Vile Films capture Dr.D's rebellious streak and love for the illegal side of life which started with the London warehouse party scene in the late 80's before going on to organise his own illegal parties in the early nineties. Featuring exclusive 8mm Video Footage of the 1992 Over the moon event (under the A40 bridge) in London.
