From Hong Kong to Chile, Lebanon, Italy, the United States and France, the calls to revolt against abuse and injustice have multiplied rapidly, reminding us that “disobedience” is not the prerogative of a temperamental teenager in the midst of an existential crisis, but rather an act of necessity for the amelioration of our collective condition. Disobedience is Colin Kaepernick kneeling while the American anthem played during NFL games to protest police violence against African Americans. Disobedience is Carola Rackete, the German activist commander of the Sea-Watch 3 boat, arrested by the Italian government in Lampedusa for rescuing migrants from drowning in the middle of the Mediterranean...
“DISOBEDIENCE, IN THE EYES OF ANY ONE WHO HAS READ HISTORY, IS MAN'S ORIGINAL VIRTUE.
IT IS THROUGH DISOBEDIENCE THAT PROGRESS
HAS BEEN MADE...”
From BDSM nuns photographed in New York City streets by Matthew Brookes, to rebellious family values immortalized by Toby Coulson, disobedience manifests itself through different forms.
Always with style.

New star of contemporary dance, Belgian choreographer and dancer Christian Yav has in only a few years time given a quasi-political dimension to body language.
THE OTHER FACE
In order to protect our identity and privacy, fashion designers have
decided to block both facial recognition and status monitoring by doing something they are the best at: making clothes.
lous and the yakuza
Singer Lous, along with her Yakuza, promises to reshuffle the cards of the R&B song of 2020. Having already been dealt a hard hand by life, the young Afro-Belgian singer has fought hard to secure her place in the French-speaking music scene.
At 33 years-old, Julien Creuzet is one of the new rising stars of the
contemporary art scene. His work, full of colonial History, which has
been already exhibitied in major events such as FIAC in Paris or Frieze
Art Fair in London, offers a rich and mixed vision of the world that
leaves Western art facing its own ethnocentrism.
THE BEAUTY AND
At a time when our society is full of tweets and videos of influencers and youtubers, blogging and vlogging has transformed as a form of resistance. The proof: a make-up tutorial that has become a militant tool on the internet.
WHICH WAY THE
#MeToo, Panama Papers, NSA, impeachment... This past decade has paced itself at the rhythm of political and societal scandals exposed by whistleblowers. A phenomenon to which the fashion industry, known for its abuses of power, is no exception.
Singer and actress Soko is finally back to music with her third album.
A romantic and reflective opus in which she is finally accepting every emotion. A queer and spiritual rainbow made to be embraced to the fullest.
