The Superhero Project by Abner Preis is a performance where the artist goes to work dressed as superhero in different cities around the world.

The project explores the unexpected moment of public intimacy that occurs between strangers who allow themselves to share the same imaginations with the artist.
Citizens access to the liberty of free expression that comes from wearing a mask and, by extension, the transformative power of fashion.

The Superhero Project will be presented in the context of ModoBrussels, Brussels’ premiere fashion event.
