Webinar: 8th December 2021, 19:00-20:30 CET
Organised by HSE University Art and Design School, Moscow.
«Revitalize, Repair and Redesign»
In this talk Ingun Grimstad Klepp, professor in clothing and sustainability, will take you through the world of damaged clothes. She will show how the history of mending has as many holes as the clothes, and why and how interest in mending is growing. The examples given are mostly Norwegian, but international political and cultural changes will be discussed. To spend time and resources on taking care of something demands that the object is worthy of our care. It is important to do it in the right way, and not destroy it in our eager to change it. This talk is based on a brand-new book, unfortunately only available in Norwegian, about how to give clothes nine lives.
