Culture jamming, or "media hacking", is the deliberate subversion of media messages (usually advertising). This category is particularly for groups or organizations whose express purpose is to disrupt the institutions of modern, usually Western culture: the corporation, the media, science, religion. In short, their targets are "the Establishment" and most authority. The tactics used are varied, but generally fall in the category of subversive/humorous media stunts. That can range from straight-forward parodies to deliberate hoaxes. At the extremes includes anarchistic acts of "poetic terrorism," like billboard defacement, or "art sabotage", willful acts of destruction in a performance art style.
