Whataboutery - meet the co-creators
To question fashion’s exhibitionist nature and selective methods, the programme was created through an international Open Call for Contributers and open dialogues to ensure a multi-voiced and participative perspective. More than 150 fashion practitioners from almost 50 countries responded. The selected 9 co-creators were commissioned to work together on a piece specifically created for the exhibition Fashion as Encounters in a 4-month period. Together they overcame the difficulties of collaborating within an online context, battling time zones and language barriers. Despite many challenges, the co-creators found common ground and developed three amazing works. Next to the co-created work the exhibition also shows personal work of the co-creators.
Eunice Pais (Portugal), Anabel Poh Zhi Ru (Singapore, based in the Netherlands), Tra My Nguyen (Vietnam, based in Germany), Widi Asari & Riyadhus Shalihin (Indonesië), Santiago Útima (Colombia), Siviwe James (South-Africa), Danayi Madondo (Zimbabwe), Ateliê Vivo (Ana Carolina Cherubini, Andrea Guerra Arradi, Flavia Lobo de Felicio, Gabriela Cherubini) (Brazil), Wei-Chi Su (Taiwan, based in the Netherlands).
Come visit the exhibition and meet the co-creators to find out more about their work and process!
