Crapitalism, A Rubbish Exhibition
In June 2016 we organised Crapitalism, A Rubbish Exhibition in the Creative Exchange, Leith to call the big brands to task for doing too little to get rid of the problem they help create. By popular demand we re-staged it at The Image Collective in Ocean Terminal in October 2016. Some of the posters were also featured at the Manchester Museum’s Rubbish Night in April 2018.
On the entrance poster we showed all the logos of the brands whose packaging litters our streets and thanked them as sponsors without whom our exhibition wouldn’t have been possible.
We exhibited posters where we’d twisted the slogans of the brands, and created a big banner from 300 discarded scratchcards, one of the most common litter items in Leith.
