The Yes Men
Notorious mischief-makers the Yes Men are an activist duo known for their outrageous interventions at business events, on the Internet, television, and in the streets. Armed with nothing but thrift store suits, the Yes Men impersonate big-time corporate evildoers in order to draw attention to their crimes against humanity and the environment, helping to raise awareness and build public pressure for change.
The Yes Men’s award winning films include, The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World and most recently The Yes Men Are Revolting. Their work has been shown in the Whitney Biennial, the Venice Biennale, ARS Electronica, and many other art exhibitions. They are the recipients of numerous awards, including Creative Time’s Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change, the United Nations Association Film Festival Grand Jury Award, and Best Documentary Award at HBO Comedy Arts Festival.
