10 February 2021: Whataboutery 03: Fashion against Capitalism
International fashion platform State of Fashion invites you to join this online event
State of Fashion is a platform originated to re-think the fashion system. In the aftermath of their 2018’s symposium Searching for the New Luxury, and in run-up to their biennial in 2022, they host four interventions for which they invite thinkers and makers from all over the world. With provocative readings, online conversations, interactive workshops, and inspiring visuals, they reflect on fashion, its flaws and its future, from a variety of angles. You can watch the video registrations of the first two interventions. The third event will take place on February 10th.
For this third intervention Transition guest-editor is Warehouse | A place for Clothes in Context. Three practitioners - Aïcha Abbadi, Shanzhai Lyric and Chinouk Filique de Miranda - will elaborate on their individual contributions to the multilogue which revolves around critical explorations of non-industrial and non-capitalist fashion. In this conversation, led by sociologist, fashion theorist and culture critic Monica Titton, T’ai Smith author of soon to be published book Fashion After Capital will join them to deepen their perspectives and share their thoughts on the agency of practitioners.
