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