Pins help you to differentiate yourself from unwanted personal connotations – they protect you from undesirable reproaches. In the wide range of pseudo and semi- political amulets people wear, the unique pins of the Protest Supplies Store’s Antagonizers series, are not meant for differentiation or protection, but to start a conversation; opening up controversial domains to be interacted with on an interpersonal level. Very unrepresented, but pressingly present political topics, rather than the ‘standard’ post- modern political stances, are imaged in this series.
just be nice? By Mina Schneider
Due to COVID-19 it’s getting more and more difficult to show sympathy for one another. Measures taken by governments are getting progressively more severe. Society is divided into ‘good’ and ‘bad’ depending on whether one complies with these measures. Wearing a mask has become a symbol for a society where we care for each other. But does not wearing one render you unsympathetic? That’s why you can now wear a mask even though you are not wearing it on your face. You are setting a statement by wearing this mask the wrong way!? Get into discussions and use the fact that you are torn between two sides.
