In Ballroom Etiquette, Victorian etiquette rules for ladies meet manhandling and close combat techniques for the police and the military.
This détournement results in a set of 23 illustrated ballroom etiquette rules for gentlemen where combat moves are turned into a pantomime of absurd courtesy and good manners.
Ballroom Etiquette is both a parody of and a statement against state violence and gender prejudice.  
Printed on recycled paper with soya-oil based inks on an MZ risograph duplicator. Cover finishing: thermography powder embossing
