MICA's proud to present Andy Bichlbaum of The Yes Men for an open presentation to the MICA community held on March 27th. Andy Bichlbaum is a writer, producer and activist and will be here at MICA to discuss his films, art work, and political activist tactics.
Andy Bichlbaum (a.k.a. Jacques Servin) began his current adulthood by inserting a swarm of kissing men to a shoot-'em-up video game just before it shipped to store shelves. Finding himself fired and momentarily famous, he opted to go into weird activism. Since then, as co-founder of the Yes Men (www.theyesmen.org), he's worked for entities such as Exxon, Dow, Monsanto, and the US Chamber of Commerce, as well as for the New York Times, the New York Post, and the Washington Post, all without their approval.
-This event will be followed by a Q & A discussion with Andy Bichlbaum (The Yes Men), along with MICA faculty members, Nadia Hironaka (Film and Video) and Firmin DeBrabander (Arts and Humanities).
This public program has been made possible by the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Mixed Media Speaker Series, hosted by the Film and Video Department in part with the JHU-MICA Film Centre and Evil Twin Booking Agency.
