”Cultural Hacking – Kunst des Strategischen Handelns”, an essay collection on subversive efforts to escape the branding machine of the media and corporate retailers. Rooted in a revised Cultural Studies approach, Thomas Duello and Franz Liebl outline strategies of subversion and symbolic exchange back to the Dadaists and Situationist movements. The essays trace histories of cultural practices (Coolness, Punk), map ”deviant” consumer behavior and outline artistic practices of symbolic reappropriation.
