Talkshow: The Politics of Practice-Based Fashion Research
International symposium with pioneering fashion scholars and practitioners to explore critical contemporary fashion research practice.
This Fall, the Austrian Center for Fashion Research, in collaboration with MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, is hosting a one-day symposium to bring together a group of pioneering fashion scholars and practitioners to explore critical contemporary fashion (research) practices. They will investigate the transformative potential of critical fashion knowledge between theory and practice, between doing and thinking, and beyond assumed disciplinary and epistemological boundaries. The symposium aims to react to changing paradigms in fashion practice and its promise to be a tool for criticality outside of fashion’s commercial imperative.
New social, cultural, political, technological and economical settings are creating new platforms for creative and critical inquiry into fashion and they require alternative forms of research and scholarship, as they bring new impulse into practice. Through a series of talks, panel discussions, lecture performances and fashion displays, the event aims to showcase critical curatorial, artistic, and academic interventions in fashion, art and design alike.
