FEATURE: ‘Spectre’ in Rankin’s special issue of ‘the Drum’ magazine

September 30, 2019 - Homepage

The Drum’s October issue is guest edited by renowned photographer Rankin, who examines the subject of honesty in the show entitled “Sell Me the Truth”. From whistle-blowers to big data to creativity and the climate crisis, this provocative issue of the magazine takes a long hard look at the advertising industry in the post-truth era.

The Spectre project is profiled alongside ‘Sisters Uncut’ and ‘Forensic Architecture’ in a special installment of Creative Works. Rankin highlights his favorite examples of activists and artists hacking the tools of our industry, from resisting the attention economy to occupying London’s tube ads.

The issue also includes interviews with Carole Cadwalladr, Sir Martin Sorrell, Oobah Butler, Munroe Bergdorf and Oliviero Toscani; comment from Jonathan Freedland, Alastair Campbell and Matthew Todd; and contributions from Superunion, Extinction Rebellion and more.
