Billboards and commercial messages dominate the public space like never before. Can we reverse this visual pollution?
“This Space Available” is a documentary that explores the reclaiming of public space, and a global grassroots movement that aligns ordinary citizens with visionary politicians, business leaders and street artists. Director Gwenaelle Gobé meets people around the world who want to reclaim the integrity of their cities against an onslaught of visual pollution.
What can Bristol learn from this movement? As we watch the spread of intrusive digital advertising across our city, is it time to ask ourselves how we want our city to look, and what we want to do about it?
