by sbrothier
“A l’heure de la rédaction de ce mémoire, je constate un rapport extrêmement inégal entre l’amplitude que prend, dans nos études de design graphique, la notion de “graphisme d’auteur” et sa place réelle dans la pratique de ce métier. Je mesure également la distance qui distingue le monde des auteurs, monde savant regardant tantôt avec dédain, tantôt avec amusement les autres formes de graphisme, et celui des amateurs, ignorant presque tout du graphisme et à fortiori du graphisme d’auteur. J’ai par conséquent eu la volonté de me dégager de la vision unilatérale que me propose (malgré lui) l’enseignement en communication visuelle en étudiant le graphisme le plus opposé au graphisme d’auteur: le graphisme amateur. ”

GUERRILLAGIRLS: Fighting discrimination with facts, humor and fake fur

by sbrothier & 2 others
We're a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks. We have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. We use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. We wear gorilla masks to focus on the issues rather than our personalities. Dubbing ourselves the conscience of culture, we declare ourselves feminist counterparts to the mostly male tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger. Our work has been passed around the world by kindred spirits who we are proud to have as supporters. It has also appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, Bitch and Bust; on TV and radio, including NPR,, the BBC and CBC; and in countless art and feminist texts. The mystery surrounding our identities has attracted attention. We could be anyone; we are everywhere.
