A creative biannual about the culture of beauty.
The world is full of relentless imagery of pseudo glamour masquerading as beauty. In reality, this has nothing to do with beauty; it is about conformity, brand and formula. Peddlers of false hopes, hierarchies, religions and pornographers have all subverted beauty for their own end. Without character and emotion, there is no beauty, and it is too oppressive to present one ideal to women or men. Punk said, “screw the formula”; we say liberate creative beauty – give beauty a brave new face.
