Hoda Katebi - On The Politics of Fashion

  • Webp.net resizeimage

Besides being used as a measure of one's clout, fashion is a powerful means of communication, oppression, and resistance. Between Kanye West's 'refugee camp' collection and miniskirts being used as a sign of Afghanistan's modernization, the way we choose to present our bodies for public consumption is more powerful than might meet the eye. Starting with images of illegal fashion she documented in her book Tehran Streetstyle, Hoda Katebi will guide participants through an engaging conversation exploring the politics of fashion and what it reveals about contemporary structures of violence -- and modes of resistance.
