Artistic Activism – The Tax Dodgers

The Tax Dodgers project happened in 2012, with the “Tax Dodgers” being a fictional baseball team made-up of wealthy U.S. corporations. The project used humor to address the issues of income inequality and corporate influence in politics.

Coming across these videos the other day, I had to post the Tax Dodgers series here for the inspiration and delight of all creatives and activists. Enjoy!

Voice of Art – Tax Dodgers, Part 1

Rather than trying to depress people with these realities [i.e., income inequality], we realized that trying to elevate their spirits through humor actually allowed them to engage the issues and have the conversation that we wanted to have about what was causing all these problems.

    Very creative, good artists. People may want to watch an excellent documentary about corporate tax evasion – “We’re Not Broke” – at filmsforaction.org. Thanks.

      You are a wealth of information! I’ll watch that film, and will explore Films for Action. Looks like a great site.
