Fashion theorist & designer Otto Busch to give lecture at RMIT
Apr '09
Swedish haute couture heretic, fashion renegade and DIY-demagogue, Otto von Busch, is coming to Melbourne.

The fashion theorist and designer will give a free public lecture at RMIT University's Brunswick campus on Wednesday, 22 April.

With a doctorate in critical fashion design from Sweden's Goteborg University, von Busch is an artist and activist who explores ways to hack the operating system of fashion.

His hands-on projects look at how participatory practices can render fashion inclusive, yet still exclusive, and he draws on the practice and tactics of hacking, fan fiction, liberation theology and development practice in his work.

von Busch sees these means as sharing an approach that can liberate the mythical energy in fashion – hacking the flows of the fashion operating system, but keeping the power on.

Recycling becomes upcycling and fashioning becomes upfashioning.

In his public lecture, Becoming Fashionable: Hacktivism and Engaged Fashion Design, von Busch will explore how the intensities of fashion can be reverse-engineered, hacked, tuned and shared among many participants as a form of social activism and sustainability, from community workshops to collaborations with the fashion industry.
