Softshell Hardcore: The Softness Revolution by Antonia-Maria Platzer


Antonia-Maria Platzer, also known as Softshell Hardcore, is an Italian artist and designer currently based in Berlin. Their work revolves around creating a vibrant and nurturing space for their inner child, which they refer to as a “revolution for softies.” Drawing inspiration from personal experiences, diverse cultures, and the pursuit of justice for individuals who prioritize cooperation over competition, Softshell Hardcore strives to restore authenticity and tenderness for marginalized individuals. Expressing their ideas through various mediums such as painting, sewing, and AI work, their visual art depicts imaginative character brought to life as 3D entities and magical warriors. Through the use of color and elements of “softness,” they challenge patriarchal structures.
