Woooohoooo my lovely music lovers! Me and my dj girlfriend, Femke Dekker from Strange Boutique, are organizing another Fur Free Fashion exhibition! Knowing you, you don’t wanna miss this out!!! We asked super talented and famous print designers to design a protest poster for us, which we’ll exhibit next week during Fashion Week in Amsterdam. Exhibition is free of charge, so if you’re in the neighborhood, come find us there!
Here’s what it’s all about:
Protest posters have always been part of the activist anti-fur movement. And throughout history protest art has contributed some of the most recognizable images to our collective memory.
Who doesn’t remember John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s legendary ‘War is Over’ poster against the Vietnam war or Opland’s ‘Ban the bomb’?
Wanting to bring back the spirit of protest Fur Free Fashion invited the following print- and graphic designers to come up with their very own iconic Fur Free protest poster.
Bart de Baets
Hansje van Halem
Karen van de Kraats
Our Polite Society
We also invited PInar & Viola to design a Fur Free scarf to emphasize the protest spirit.
From January 21st till January 26th, all designs will be on view at De Slang, one of Amsterdam’s oldest squats on the Spuistraat. A perfect setting for our PROTEST!
Fur Free Fashion’s ‘PROTEST!” is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts), Bont voor Dieren and Bavaria.
Fur Free Fashion is part of winterSALON/2013.
