On December 2, the New Space of the Theater of Nations will host the conference "Fashion and Humor: Strategies, Theories and Practice", timed to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Theory of Fashion magazine. Russian and foreign fashion researchers will speak to the guests: they will tell how an ironic statement about fashion is formed, what functions it performs in different societies, and how the fashion industry itself appropriates an ironic language, becoming the subject of social criticism.
Here are some of the topics of the performances: “Satirical / Sartorial: Fashionable comics in The New Yorker” (Jenna Rossi-Camus), “Comedy can be of two kinds: gender in fashionable satire” (Ksenia Gusarova), “Buffonade, carnival, banter: alternative fashion shows perestroika "(Irina Sirotkina)," Persian leopard against the Shanghai jerboa: self-irony and auto-parody of modern costume designers "(Linor Goralik).
You can attend the conference free of charge by registering on Timepad, where the schedule of performances is also available. For those who cannot donate a working day and personally attend the conference, an online broadcast will be organized - you can connect to it directly in this material. We will remind you of this on Thursday evening.
