Multidisciplinary artist Rene Matić shares her work exploring Britain’s Skinhead movement.

“I’m currently writing my dissertation on the lost narrative of Caribbean involvement in the Skinhead subculture and its subsequent co-option by far-right nationalists. Of course, Fred was a huge part of the uniform of the Skins and so the ‘Fossilised Fred’ is a reference to buried black histories.”
