A resurgence of political art is in the air from Russia, where the persecution of Pussy Riot proves how threatening outsider art can be to the status quo, to Las Vegas where anonymous jammers have pulled off one of the most potent billboard liberations of the decade.

“Several shocking billboards with dummies dangling from a hangman’s noose caused a stir in Las Vegas on Wednesday morning,” reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal earlier this month. Thus far, no one has claimed credit for the Occupy inspired billboard jams which read “Hope You’re Happy Wall St.” and “Dying for work.”

As the austerity deepens, an art war against capitalism grows.
