The Yes Men The Yes Men
AIGA Philadelphia invited public performance activists and artists The Yes Men to discuss design, guerrilla anti-consumerism, and the power of the self-initiated project. The Yes Men have built a vocation addressing various social issues by impersonating specific organizations in a process that they like to call “Identity Correction.” The group designs websites and materials so convincingly mimicking their targets’ brands that they are invited to interviews, conferences, meetings, and summits to represent said entities. Since the late 1990′s, the group has carried out many pranks and projects, impersonating the World Trade Organization, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, The United States Chamber of Commerce, and this year, Shell, amongst others.
