Destructables is a how-to website for creative activism, complete with step-by-step instructions, photos, videos and illustrations. “Destructables” is a play on the popular Instructables how-to site. We’ve written previously about some of the groups behind Destructables, including prankster incubator The Yes Lab (by The Yes Men) and activist how-to book/website Beautiful Trouble.
Destructables.org is an advertising free Do It Yourself website for projects of protest and creative dissent. The site features user generated step-by-step video and photo/text based instructions for a wide range of dissenting actions, including (but not limited to): art actions, billboard alterations, shop-dropping, protest strategies, knit-bombing, making protest props, interventions, methods of civil disobedience, stencil work, performative actions, and many other forms of public dissent – from the practical and tactical to the creative and illegal. It is a living archive and resource for the art and activist communities.
