PRESS

“…Also in Lodz, Public Movement systematically stencilled bright blue Jewish stars over the amateurish white Jewish stars that rival fans had graffitied over the ‘K’ in the name of the football team LKS Lodz (Stars, 2008). The white stars expressed vague contempt, conveyed though the ready-made rhetoric of anti-Semitism; the blue stars asserted an identity in the teeth of its negative evaluation.”
