Shopdropping Montreal





Shopdropping Montreal is a Montreal based collective made up of artists and designers who take part in the act of shopdropping.

SHOPDROP: to covertly place merchandise on display in a store. A form of 'culture jamming'.

I don't know if I would call this culture jamming. None of the 'shopdropped' items seem to make any statement about consumerism or even the commercialization of public spaces. Maybe you can explain it to me but this seems more like glorified vandalism than culture jamming.

On reflection I agree. I'd like to see more of a political statement too.
