Limited edition prints to be given away at Henry Rollins show.
JDK, Iskra Print Collective, and HG have teamed up to create limited-edition short-run prints for the Henry Rollins show at the Vermont College of Fine Arts on October 26. A limited number of prints will be given to concertgoers following the show.
See the design below, as well as, an artist statement from designer Michael Jager.
The ability to kill what you know.
This is something that Henry Rollins has represented from my very first encounters with his work, that energy that Black Flag unleashed so many years ago. Rollins has always relentlessly questioned convention, ready at any moment to smash traditional thinking and articulate insights—that few have the willingness to express—in powerfully direct ways.
Through his music and spoken-word performances, his communication is decidedly direct, powerful, and honest. It stares you in the face with a reality that inspires you to question everything. And you should.
The Capitalism poster that we've created attempts to respect that attitude with an absolute directness: the reality is that capitalism should be respected in some ways, but we must also recognize that there are many parts of it that are broken and need to be reimagined. We gotta kill what we know so that we have the ability to make things new and right and more meaningful again.
It really is about staring the future in the face, no matter how scary that future might feel. We hope that this art communicates a direct and raw power that Rollins himself embodies and we all so desperately need.
