Artists, designers and retailers drive their message home with inventive rage of merchandise
When it comes to making radical political statements, Jeremy Deller has been there, done that – and now he’s sold the T-shirt. The Turner prize-winning artist’s Fuck Brexit collection, which includes T-shirts, beach towels and a mug, has now almost sold out as Remainers seek creative ways to vent their frustration.
Launched in collaboration with arts charity Studio Voltaire, Deller’s pieces have raised £25,000 for the organisation. “It’s been the most popular range we have ever made,” said the charity’s head of development Niamh Conneely. Of an original stock of 800 T-shirts, only 60 remain.
