Lisa Anne Auerbach's Awesome, Arty Feminist Sweaters

Forget binders full of women… The hottest election accessory should be these cozy, subversive art pieces by Los Angeles-based feminist and bike activist artist Lisa Anne Auerbach! Oh. Eh. Sorry that we just did that. Seriously, you can forget the binders, but these sweaters are still awesome. Auerbach, who received an MFA in photography from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, started creating these deliberately provocative pull-over pieces back in 2004, when she no longer had access to her school’s darkroom. “Knitting was a way I could continue to make art,” she told The New York Times last year. “It’s portable and I can do it anywhere. Now that I’m teaching photography at Pomona College, I knit on the train during my commute, and it’s a great way to pass the time in faculty meetings.” Certainly being pro-bike, anti-monogamist, and gleefully atheist aren’t necessary mutually inclusive philosophies, but browse this closet and see which of her incredible statement sweaters matches you. Ride on!
