• Hardcore will never die

    Editorial Design / Bachelor Thesis
    For my bachelor thesis I looked into the Gabber youth culture that originated in the Netherlands and became extremely popular during the nineties. While the scene was often subject to negative media coverage due to its reputation of violence and drug abuse, I decided to use a neutral and rather scientific approach to find out what Gabber is all about. The result is a 128-page book dealing with both the hard facts and the emotional side of a passionate fan base that gathers around an uncompromising style of music.
