Culture Jam

In this planetary endgame we’re in, the rampaging cultural warrior is just as important as the deep meditator. —Kalle Lasn

Kalle Lasn, founder and editor of Adbusters, is a Zen Buddhist. Yes, that’s right, and he still practices his particular form of critical Buddhism. His practice is culture jamming, producing Adbusters, the Magazine of the Mental Environment.

Our practice of engagement at Queer Dharma Circle is Culture Jamming. We are artists, writers, film-makers, musicians and performers, critically engaging with our mediated world, while we dig our fingers into the dirt at the Farm.

There’s a time in everybody’s life when you have to take a journey inward and confront the demons inside. That is a journey we all have to take. But after awhile, especially if you have some success within your own heart and mind, then the time comes to take another kind of journey—a journey outward. That journey is a journey into culture, into the heart of the speed and the greed, to confront the external demons. That’s what culture jamming is all about. —Kalle Lasn
