SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM “if you want peace prepare to war" (epitoma rei militaris by vegetius). We tend to consider the current state of welfare as a status quo. taken for granted far too often, this illusionary sense of safety can easily disappear. pieces in the collection are inspired by the military uniform. camo patterns on the garments are printed in vertical stripes and crosses. the striped print is associated with uniforms worn by concentration camp prisoners, while the other one—crosses—brings to mind the post battle scenery as well as genocide and war crime.
