This mini-exhibition and zine produced at Onomatopee in October along a workshop October 4 and 5, seek out to provide insight into the mechanisms of value production that lie at the core of fashion today.
Through (re-)reading, analysing and discussing a magazine, A Magazine Reader issue 003, serves as material for investigating how a certain topic is viewed upon and being sold through fashion mass media.
Zine launch on Saturday, October 26th, 7 PM
A Magazine Reader is an ongoing research trajectory and series of zines initiated by Femke de Vries, Hanka van der Voet and Warehouse. The series of workshops dissects and critically analyzes contemporary fashion magazines from various perspectives subsequently reproducing its content in an alternative form. By re-reading the magazine’s content, interrogating it and analysing its words, images, materiality, items and strategies, we change the ways in which we read fashion.
Femke de Vries works as a designer/artist and researcher in the field of fashion where she focuses on the social, economic and design-related effects of fashion as a system aimed at value production. Together with Hanka van der Voet and Elisa van Joolen she initiated Warehouse, a collective aiming to provide a platform for critical fashion practitioners.
