New Seda Group
We celebrate the struggle against capitalism with a stream of posters,
photography, zines, stickers ,street art and graffiti . On May Day we
distribute posters that demand the impossible and we will convey the
desires of the people in shopping centres and side streets, beside motorways
and on the shiny windows of the despised banks of St. Pauls and The
City of London. Our language is an echo of past protests and a vision
of new ones that hopes to prove that beneath the pavement is the beach.
Beyond punk and the jaded reality of the world of office and factory
jobs we outline new words that shadow the system and call out for dreams.
Our love adores Emma Goldman, Rosa Luxemburg and Ulrike Meinhof alongside
Kathe Kollwitz and Frieda Karlo .
Every advert is a potential surface to be punctured and usurped. Every
street is the stage for a next movement, every workplace wall is a new
focus for free art.
Give out your paintings and make them into posters to decorate the banks
in free colours and forms.
Go to the art studio and empty it into the parks and open spaces . Take
the business magazines and stick them with slogans from the edge of
the day. Support any worker striking and assassinate the passer by .
CCTV is the new scab , no fire escape in hell....
Dont let the police and supermarkets use boredom to stifle your desires.
Stand up and support all class war prisoners. From under the city will
come new vital art forms that link up with strikes and protests.
Let the landlord and the store detective stutter while we call for liberation
and theft. The ideas are ours, from every city centre, every prison
and every workplace we can make new art that will stun and defy the
old galleries and the bland daytime talk shows alike....
Our purpose is to denigrate the casual repression of everday life and
re invent our desires in the streets and squares of the capital. From
zines and posters we shadow the clock ticking down the working day before
surplus value is extracted. Our desires are for the whole, our language
will be made between the texts of Rosa and the underground glance of
We will make new situations.
The unemployed are defined by the state and we will
put our slogans on job centres and council offices because our art is
free and belongs to the people.
