John Stezaker (b. 1949) British conceptual artist known best for his collage series Mask, Marriage and Dark Star.
[...] Taking classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations, (John) Stezaker makes collages to give old images a new meaning.

From Sean Fader‘s “confidence man” and “I want to put you on” projects.
The Superhero Project by Abner Preis is a performance where the artist goes to work dressed as superhero in different cities around the world.
The project explores the unexpected moment of public intimacy that occurs between strangers who allow themselves to share the same imaginations with the artist.
Citizens access to the liberty of free expression that comes from wearing a mask and, by extension, the transformative power of fashion.
The Superhero Project will be presented in the context of ModoBrussels, Brussels’ premiere fashion event.
