Couture commune is a collaborative project by African and European artists. Their core interest is researching, producing and presenting clothing. All project participants bring in their respective cultures, bodies, experience with clothing, preferences and interests. Their common question is: What image do I have of myself, my body and the clothing that I’m wearing? And what image and clothing do I attribute to others?
That way, Couture commune is located within an intersection of clothing, fashion, art and science. The workshop’s objective is experimenting with own and other body and fashion images and putting together a performance including different textiles and pieces of clothing.
On occasion of the Long Night of Museums, there will be an open workshop on March 18, 2006 as well as a performance and fashion show at puppet theater FITZ on March 23, 2006.
