April 28: Fashion at the Edge Discussion


Please join the Object Cultures Reading Group for a discussion of Caroline Evan’s Fashion at the Edge.  Drawing on diverse perspectives from Marx to Walter Benjamin, Evans explores experimental fashion’s preoccupation with representations of death, trauma, alienation and decay and what these disturbing themes tell us about consumer culture and contemporary anxieties.  (Lunch will be provided).

Pre-circulated selections: fashion edge one and fashion edge ten

Location: Walker 403, 1115 E. 58th St.
