LUMPEN
2016, SSFP(SUNGSU SOCIAL FASHION PROJECT)

‘LUMPENPROLETARIAT’
is a term used primarily by Marxist
theorists to describe the underclass devoid of class consciousness.
A group of unemployed people, such as vagrants, criminals, drug abusers, and prostitutes who are isolated and helpless in their own unemployment situation and are suffering from a lack of enthusiasm for labor.

They inevitably emerge from the capitalist society.
The English LUMPEN means vagrant, and the German LUMP means a ragged person,
worn-out person, or vagrant.

LUMPEN criticizes existing artisans in Sugsu-dong for their poor eyesight and
the fact that they are driven around by social unfairness such as
'Gentrification'
where they are forced to leave due to the cost and inflow of large capital.
It compares LUMPEN's appearance with bold oversized silhouette, asymmetry, patchwork,
and all-outream and image prints.
