Anti-dog is an art project in the form of a clothes label. When Alicia Framis was living temporarily in Berlin, she was warned not to venture into certain parts of the city where racist right-wing extremists hung out. Since Framis is dark-skinned, she might be attacked, she was told. The racists often set their dogs on immigrants and others they disliked. Therefore, Framis collaborated with various fashion designers to create a collection of clothes made out of Twaron – a material that is resistant to bullets, flames and dog bites.
