Dark + Disturbing
Curated t-shirt collection that questions the systems in which we live.
What is Dark and Disturbing -
Dark and disturbing is a curatorial project that explores Aboriginal sensibilities around knowledge, identity and protest. It interrogates power structures and provides a platform for Aboriginal voices.
“Dark & Disturbing references the place the ‘aborigine’ holds in this country. The ‘aborigine’ is either rendered invisible, as in terra nullius, or is made negative and pathologised as a problem or a curse.”

Dark & Disturbing through its designs challenges race and power in Australia.
