#Dysturb is a group of photojournalists who paste large-size posters in cities around the world, focusing on under-reported stories with the intention of getting this information to a wider audience. In addition to their public projects, they also have a quarterly print journal.

I first saw their work in Newcastle, UK (pictured above) as part of The Newbridge Project’s Hidden Civil War, a month of programming by various artists around the city in October of 2016.

#Dysturb’s current project is #WomenMatter, focusing on the fight against all types of violence against women. On International Women’s Day 2018, the group will be celebrating their fourth anniversary with a free discussion of this project, as well as their other work and the role of paste-up campaigns in contemporary documentary practice at ICP Museum in NYC.

This image is one of LA street artist Killyrslf’s versions of Gee Vaucher’s “Oh America, which was created in 1989 and used for the cover of an album by the group Tackhead. It was just recently used for the cover of British newspaper the Daily Mirror’s November 10th issue, which highlighted the results of the 2016 American election. For more information on the choice of the image by the paper and the artist herself (and her first major retrospective exhibition on now in Essex) check out this article.
