Collaboration with Ace & Tate
Amsterdam, Berlin, 2019
Poetry and optimism stand as the driving forces behind Ace & Tate's first campaign on the year, launched in conjunction with World Poetry Day. The campaign calls on three modern wordsmiths - singer and songwriter BEA1991 from Amsterdam, Berlin-based tattoo artist Monty Richthofen, and London's spoken word artist James Massiah.
This marks the beginning of Ace & Tate's 2019 commitment to the investigation of a range of themes, that was sparked by their exploration of the complexity of identity in 2018. Setting things into motion is Optimism, with each talent expressing their views on the word. Each artist did so via their own medium, with BEA1991 delivering an introspective manifesto, James Massiah penned a poem, and Monty Richthofen presented three mottos to live by.
