Overview of texts directly from fan banners in the stadiums. This book shows the absurdity, beauty and the contrasts within the overall theme. Stripped to black and white to focus on the content. Part of Money, Politics and Bananas, the graduation project of De Bruijn.
Part of De Bruijn's graduation project called 'Money, Politics and Bananas':
A world of money, glitz, and glamour. It is a subject that many people see purely as entertainment. It is a mirror of society, it reflects its qualities, but magnifies its flaws. It reflects society’s dominant values, structures, and it’s inherent conflicts and contradictions. It’s about politics, race, globalisation, power, and religion. It’s an arena for the affirmation of national, regional, and local identities. It brings together billions of people. It can stimulate peace as well as bring war. It contains unconditional love, but also causes rivalry, hate, and violence. This project is about everything but football.
