Gerrit Rietveld Academie

During 13 February - 19 February Public Rietveld edited the front page.

Re|fuse Magazine is an initiative by Olfa Ben Ali and was recently launched at Amsterdam FashionWeek. It looks like a glossy but is actually a protest against prejudice and the lack of tolerance regarding refugees. Olfa Ben Ali visited shelters in the Netherlands, Calais and Lesbos and was intrigued by the importance and symbolics of clothing. "The fashion we share in this magazine is a fashion for humanity", as Olfa says. The glossy contains contributions of o.a. Barbara Visser, Ai Weiwei Abdelkader Benali and Bas Kosters.
