During the workshop, which will consist of a practical as well as a theoretical part, questions will be posed concerning the definition of fashion, its future developments and our intimate relationship with everyday objects.
Under the leaders’ supervision, the participants will look at different uses and connotations of folding, draping and gathering garments. The eponymous fold will become our starting point and pretext for exploring the symbolic and material aspects of fashion by carrying out micro research projects.
The workshop will provide the participants with knowledge about a critical approach to fashion in its social and political contexts, and about formulating research projects within its scope by combining questions concerning the form and theory.
The workshop is intended to implement a theoretical and critical approach to fashion, to reflect on its most crucial problems, such as production and the materials used, and also to oppose the naïve discourse that it usually functions in.
