At the centre of every BBZ art party is the collective’s admirable drive to celebrate the works of queer people of colour and make them feel at home.

On the description for their first event the collective, then made up of just two (Nadine Davis and Tia Simon-Campbell) wrote: “We want this to be a guest led experience, the house party you’ve always wanted to go to.” Over a year…

Bad Canteen: the new reality show about your best mates who can’t cook

maxresdefault

We all have that one mess of a friend who can’t look after themselves even though they’re creeping into their early twenties. Bad Canteen has managed to find six of them. An endearing YouTube reality series about a collective of young Londoners, some of whom barely even know how to boil an egg, it tracks their progress in learning how to cook and setting up their own food outlet.

Today, they are premiering the second episode of the series on Dazed.

How photography has progressed ideas of gender identity and expression

Aperture: Future Gender

Newton’s third law, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction,” goes far beyond the scope of physics. We can see it in all areas of life, perhaps most clearly where oppression exists and takes root.

Last month, American Danica Roem was elected Virginia’s first trans state legislator – unseating Bob Marshall, the man who sponsored the state’s transgender bathroom bill banning trans students from using public facilities that corresponded to their gender identity and…

Joie et Beauté SS18

Young label Joie et Beauté is new on our radar, turning up with an anonymous head of design in tow, production entirely based in Italy, and an SS18 collection that isn’t for the shrinking violet.

The enigmatic designer behind J&B has crafted a collection combining oversized silhouettes and asymmetric designs with clashing patterns and a whole bunch of different materials. For the lookbook, the collection was shot in the streets of Paris, which feels fitting, given the French name…

N.E.R.D team up with Kendrick Lamar & Frank Ocean for ‘Don’t Don’t Do It!’

nerd

N.E.R.D have hooked up with Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean for their blistering new track “Don’t Don’t Do It”. The song was inspired by the death of Keith Scott who was fatally shot by police in North Carolina last year. Keith’s wife witnessed the tragedy and filmed it all on her phone as she cried, “Don’t do it. Don’t don’t do it Keith. Don’t don’t do it.”

While the song naturally has serious darker tones of police…

Barbara Kruger on staging a fake Supreme drop

Screen Shot 2017-12-14 at 12.24.00

At dusk one Thursday evening in November, a queue has formed outside a storefront in New York’s Soho. There’s a security guard on the door, and the line of people snakes around the corner of the block. Passers-by on the busy sidewalk take curious glimpses inside. “Is this, like, a Supreme store?” a teenage girl asks no-one in particular.

Although those waiting include more women than you’ll see outside the skate brand’s NY flagship a block away, it’s not hard to…

Dilara Findikoglu on her time-travelling, Trump-fighting comic character

dilara_warrior_sorceress cover-3

For fashion designers, collections are their way of presenting their thoughts and ideas to the world. What do you do, though, if those ideas can’t all be communicated via clothing? If you’re London-based designer Dilara Findikoglu, the answer is simple: create your own comic book.

Although she had been keen to showcase her more political views for a number of seasons, Findikoglu didn’t think her collections were the best way to do that. After…
