Fripperies and Trimmings: Meaning Arises Through Use

De Geuzen (NL 2003)

‘De Geuzen’ is a collective of three artists that have been joined in collaboration since 1996. During the IMPAKT Festival, they will present a number of collective D.I.Y. projects. For the project, the collective will restyle a space into a sewing and ironing studio where visitors can work on printing their own clothing or fabrics available in the studio. In addition, fabrics printed beforehand can be used to design garments and accessories. The central element within this project is the thought that the body can be used as a tool to convey a ‘message’. Wearing clothing and accessories with texts or signs and the way in which they are worn can be regarded as significant signals enabling the person to express his position on politics, society or religion.
