Looking at "silenced" and "broken" as our key words, we have developed a thesis of capturing the restrictive quality of the words exploring the lack of freedom of speech and the suppression of individuality.
Motivated by the fluffy, sparkly bastions of girlishness on the runways recently - from Ryan Lo's tutus to Meadham Kirchhoff's minis - SHOWstudio launches a new series to unpick fashion's relationship with overt, cartoon femininity. Envisaged by editor Lou Stoppard and director Nick Knight, the project features a film by Knight and Rei Nadal alongside scholarly essays and relevant interviews.

Pussy Riot//I Can't Breathe
The three words of "I can't breathe" have been asked to carry a lot of weight. Anyone who's been online in the past year knows that the final statement of Eric Garner, who died after being put in a chokehold by an NYPD officer, has come to serve as a rallying call for the nationwide Black Lives Matter movement, dedicated to calling out systemic racism and police mistreatment of people of color. Their first English-language song and video is called “I Can’t Breathe,” and its creators say it's “for Eric and for all those from Russia to America and around the globe who suffer from state terror—killed, choked, perished because of war and state-sponsored violence of all kinds—for political prisoners and those on the streets fighting for change."

Ai’s sculpture, sound, and mixed-media installations occupied four locations in the former prison: the New Industries Building; a group of cells in A Block; the Hospital; and the Dining Hall. With the exception of the Dining Hall, these areas were usually restricted to the public, but all were open throughout the run of the exhibition. @Large turned Alcatraz into a space for dialogue about how we define liberty and justice, individual rights and personal responsibility. In artworks that balanced political impact with aesthetic grace, the exhibition directly and imaginatively addressed the situation of people around the world who have been deprived of their freedom for speaking out about their beliefs — people like Ai himself.
After the Bombing / Speech at Ford Auditorium
February 14, 1965
Malcolm delivered this speech on the very night that his home in New York was firebombed. He was terribly tired and worried, yet he still showed up all the way in Detroit-- this shows his extreme courage and determination. This is probably his last speech outside of New York, and displays his intellect and honesty, as well as his ideas and understanding close to his death.
