In doing so, the Fashion Professorship aims to contribute to practicing alternative and solidary systems with more agency for human beings in precarious positions and more care for all living beings.
The MA Critical Fashion Practices believes in the possibility of multiple fashion systems, and together critically explore alternative, non-industrial modes and frameworks for making, doing, seeing and experiencing fashion and clothes.
