Across the world, wherever you look, in all cultures and traditions, the use of masks to transform the individual has been recognised and celebrated. Masking yourself can liberate you from your identity, transform you into a new hybrid creature, the goat, the fox, the cat, the dog, the fish, the cow. Masking can channel archetypes which allow us to speak the truth. Visibility through invisibility. And not be identified by surveillance cameras or pigs.
Wearing a mask is a way the Zapatistas invite everyone into the struggle. “We cover our faces so that we can be seen”
Fancy a pig mask? Simply click on the image to download the pdf, and print A4 – for best results select ‘fit’ – then stick on some cardboard and cut him out. The mouth is firmly closed in case the toffs get any funny ideas. Oink!
Here are just a few mask designs the Fuck Brigade have noticed. Search the web for ideas, tips and tricks, or check out your local party shops, army surplus stores or taxidermists.
