Symposium: Talkshow. The Politics of Practice-Based Fashion Research by Austrian Center for Fashion Research in collaboration with MAK
International symposium with pioneering fashion scholars and practitioners to explore critical contemporary fashion research practice.
The Politics of Practice-Based Fashion Research
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.
