The book of the first international exhibition of subvertising that ran at Kunstraum Kreuzberg, Berlin in 2022. Werbepause (Adbreak): The Art of Subvertising showcases work by an international collective of artists appropriating and altering billboards and other advertising spaces in the service of artistic mischief and social issues - from hyper-consumerism, the climate crisis, and surveillance capitalism to police violence, religious authority and the criminalisation of sex workers.

The book explores the history, present and future of visual activism against advertising, bringing together artists who move between the worlds of visual art and activist direct action.
