Destructables… an activist’s Instructables

by Nick Brewer is an advertising free Do It Yourself website for projects of protest and creative dissent. The site features user generated step-by-step video and photo/text based instructions for a wide range of dissenting actions, including (but not limited to): art actions, billboard alterations, shop-dropping, protest strategies, knit-bombing, making protest props, interventions, methods of civil disobedience, stencil work, performative actions, and many other forms of public dissent – from the practical and tactical to the creative and illegal. It is a living archive and resource for the art and activist communities.

I love that these guys were looking at the information available elsewhere online (specifically instructables) and decided to create their own for the purpose of culture jamming. They also have several organizations working with them; Center for Artistic ActivismThe Yes Men / The Yes LabCrimethincAndrew Boyd / Beautiful TroubleDi Rosa, and Southern Exposure.
