Fashion Podium "Tie and Leopard Print

Fri, 18.02.2022
19:00 - 20:15
Württemberg State Museum
Talk with Prof. Dr. Alexandra Karentzos (TU Darmstadt) and Dr. Mahret Ifeoma Kupka (Museum Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt)
Fashion lives from a constant repetition, adaptation and reinterpretation of familiar formal subjects. In the process, notions of the "foreign" have been established in Western fashion (increasingly since the early 20th century) - including the kimono, tunics, certain fabric designs or traditional concepts of "African" or "Indian" fashion. All this often goes hand in hand with uncritically adapted racisms that are still rarely illuminated within the fashion system. The speakers will show exoticisms and tropicalism in fashion, introduce postcolonial critique in fashion and take a look at the interesting mesh between fashion and colonial structures. A talk on the occasion of the exhibition "Fashion?! What makes fashion fashion" of the Landesmuseum Württemberg in Stuttgart with Prof. Dr. Alexandra Karentzos (TU Darmstadt), and Dr. Mahret Ifeoma Kupka (Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt) / Moderation: Dr. Maaike van Rijn, Landesmuseum Württemberg
