The Anti-Fashion Week: Fight Lookism


There is a Berlin-based street artist  that fights the general beauty-dogma with Disney stereotypes. For sure I like the  approach of the Fight Lookism movement, even though I think they should do more art and write less texts. Normally I would say that this type of  gender/political/critical movements are much more serious in Germany than in other European countries . But I think that the Fight Lookism guys seem to  be very relaxed. Let’s see if they do some crazy stuff to argue with the fashionistas next week.

Street artists who jump through the night to take their revenge on society have always had something romantic for me. That’s also why I am a big fan of the following ad-busting artist: Princess Hijab loves to put some nasty black paint over the pretty western faces of Parisian ads.

Even if I am not so sure what kind of message Princess Hijab actually has on her mind with her art, I love the way she takes my attention and makes me think. For a more traditional approach you might perhaps check out the Veil-Fashion-Blog (no kidding). More pics of the ad busting work of Princess Hijab after the jump.
